Faithful Nuns
#4
The Carmel of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in Valparaiso, NE is rock solid. They were established in 2000 and they are working on their third foundation. They established a daughter house in Elysburg, PA in 2009, and they just started a second daughter house in Canyon, CA. And they are likely to start a fourth very soon, as the mother house in Valparaiso is still well over the limit for a Carmel (it is supposed to only be 21 nuns, but they are allowed to exceed that number if they plan on sending some out to a new foundation; there are currently nearly 40).

This line of Carmelites is thoroughly traditional. Ever since their foundation in Nebraska, they have had the traditional Mass celebrated for them daily and they recite the traditional office. They also live a strict, traditional observance of the Carmelite rule. My understanding is that the mother superior in Valparaiso came from a Carmel in Mexico which had suffered the anti-Catholic persecutions in Mexico.
