Marylake Monastery serves as the novitiate house of the Discalced Carmelite Friars (OCD). The community of friars is dedicated to the formation of men seeking to become members of the Discalced Carmelites, as well as to ministry to the Discalced Carmelite nuns of Little Rock, the Secular Carmelites and the Missionaries of Charity. The OCD priests also offer the service of sacramental ministry to many parishes around the state of Arkansas. For more information, visit the Discalced Carmelite Friars, Province of St. Thérèse.
