Bread and jelly making are a tradition that continues at Mount Carmel Hermitage.

    The monks at the Hermitage in Christoval spend the holiday season making pastries kolaches and tamales.
    Selling them will help raise money to build a new chapel.
    The men at the hermitage are consistently praying.
    They spend a lot of time working to make these goods and bring joy to people while raising money to pay the bills.
     “We do everything we can to support ourselves to let people know that we have to work like everybody else, yes we need peoples donations but we’re working to praise the lord, to give our lives to service to the lord and the people of God,” says Father Fabian Rosette.
    The Hermitage is also raising money to help pay for a new chapel in Christoval.
