The reception of the Monastery

The reception of the Monastery is open every day of the week. We will welcome you there and you can entrust us with your prayer intentions.

Open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 14 p.m. to 16:45 p.m.

The courtyard of the chapel

It is a space of transition between the outside world and that of Carmel. Its glass walls, on which are inscribed sentences by Thérèse, allow you to feel the paradox experienced by the Carmelites, who live in a closed place to better open up to the world. In the shadow of Thérèse praying, you enter a different atmosphere and can thus begin your journey to Carmel.

La Chapelle

The chapel where every day, the Carmelites, following Thérèse, carry out their mission of prayer for the world. The celebrations are open to all. Its sobriety allows us to let ourselves be attracted by the Christ who awaits us.

Weekdays from 7:20 a.m. to 18:30 p.m. (19 p.m. in summer)

Sundays, Mondays and public holidays from 7:45 a.m. to 18:30 p.m. (19 p.m. in summer)

Meeting with a priest and/or confessions

A prayer space conducive to meditation gives you the opportunity to meet a priest, to share with him what lives in you: questions, suffering, joy... and, if you wish, to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.

Monday to Saturday 15 am to 17 pm

Sunday from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The shrine of Saint Therese

It is placed in a side chapel built to house the relics of Thérèse after their exhumation and their return to Carmel. It welcomes the veneration of pilgrims. The presence of Thérèse accompanies the prayer of believers and the unfolding of liturgical offices.

Weekdays from 7:20 a.m. to 18:30 p.m. (19 p.m. in summer)

Sundays, Mondays and public holidays from 7:45 a.m. to 18:30 p.m. (19 p.m. in summer)

The Alsace-Moselle Memorial

This space was created to enable visitors to get to know Saint Thérèse of Lisieux and her message better, to immerse themselves in the universe that was that of Thérèse Carmelite and her universal glory by exhibiting the most significant and moving treasures of archives kept by the Carmel of Lisieux.
