The Congregation of the Apostolic Carmel took birth at Bayonne, France in 1868. When Mother Veronica of the Passion, founded the Congregation she did so, in response to the divine call, experienced by her through prayer and the growing realization of God’s all sufficing love, to serve the Christian community on the West Coast by giving a Christian education to the young girls of that region. Mother Veronica‘s life was full of trials and hardships. But her pioneering spirit, courage, dedication and complete faith in God’s love and help, and her divine vocation helped and strengthened.
