Superior General's Message

It is with a deep sense of gratitude we launch this website.  We see this as God’s renewed call for us to stand in his living presence and seek new horizons by the power of Christ. 

The Institute of Carmelite Sisters of St. Teresa was founded by Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima -a far sighted visionary and educator in 1887 at Ernakulam, India.  The CSST family now encompasses India, Kenya, UAE, California and Wichita (Kansas).

As you navigate this website you will get a glimpse of who we are as a Religious Institute within the Church and what we do for the humanity. Our mission is to restore human dignity to the broken and marginalized through our presence and their empowerment. We invite you to be part of our seeking . . .
