Sr. Maria Therese Healy, O. Carm


Charism and Ministries

Founded by Mother M. Angeline Teresa in New York in 1929, Mother sought to render loving care of the aged with deep respect for their dignity, loving them as children of God. The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm together with hundreds of dedicated staff and volunteers care for their beloved elderly in 23 home-like residences, in nine different states within the USA, with one home in Dublin, Ireland. The Carmelite Sisters wear a distinct religious habit, and have a regular prayer schedule including: Liturgy of the Hours, daily Eucharist, Rosary, an hour of daily meditation, and a week of retreat each year at the Motherhouse. Strengthened by community, being of one heart and mind, they continue their mission as loyal daughters of the Church rendering compassionate care to the mystical Body of Christ in the aged and infirm.
Sr. Maria Therese was born in Dublin, Ireland and came to the United States in1979 when she joined the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm.  She is a Registered Nurse and has worked with the elderly in nursing homes for almost twenty years. Caring for the frail elderly, especially the dying, is a ministry she finds both challenging and filled with surprises!  She is currently the Vocation Director for the Congregation. 

The most fulfilling aspect of her work  “... is the privilege of being a continual loving presence, accompanying the elders in our care, as they make their final journey home to the heart of God”.
