THERE'S gold in them there hills, in the Welsh hills of Dolgellau, in Gwynedd, where the gold for Royal wedding rings comes from including the ring for the bride of prince Andrew, and greater treasures too, more lasting and precious than gold, in the prayer life of the Carmel of Dolgellau.
Here the followers of the great St Teresa of Avila, and of the "Little" St Therese of Lisieux, lead a Iife of prayer, silently proclaiming the presence of God to all, interceding for the church, and for all mankind, atoning for unrepented sins, and bearing witness to the words of love of the Little Flower, "In the heart of my mother the church, I will be love".
The Carmelites of Dolgellau endeavour to earn their living by making Altar Breads (shown here in the making) for the parishes of the Diocese.
Prayer is the centre and purpose of their lives. If you are interested in Prayer and the Carmelite Life contact Mother Prioress, Carmelite Monastery, Cader Road, Dolgellau, Gwynedd, Wales, Telephone 0341-422-546
