The cloistered Carmelite Sisters of Morristown are devoted to praying more than eight hours a day for peace in our community and in the world. They are dependent on the goodwill of the community to meet their basic needs and unfortunately, the Assumption Church annual bake sale benefiting the Carmelite Sisters cannot be held this year due to the Covid pandemic.

In lieu of the bake sale, volunteers have created a cookbook of desserts, “Sweet Carmel,” which includes Catholic themed photos taken by a professional food photographer!

There will be a limited number of printed copies available by mid-December. The 80+ page cookbook will be high end magazine quality with a bounded spine. There is also a digital version that can be downloaded immediately upon payment.

Thank you for your consideration and your support. Please keep the Carmelite Sisters in your prayers, especially during these trying times. Blessings.

The world’s thy ship and not thy home
