Living Radically

For Christ and His children
in Cincinnati, OH

We bring Christ
into the lives of our parish's children
and our neighborhood's poor.

The Daughter’s of Elias are an active contemplative community of sisters living in the spirit of Elias according to the Carmelite Rule in Cincinnati. 


Our mission is to live a life of prayer and sacrifice for the Church and the world, and to work for the spiritual and moral formation of the youth of Old St. Mary and Sacred Heart parishes.

How We Serve


We inflame the hearts of the young so they can change the world and heal its wounds through God’s love and grace.

Growth in the Church Militant

By fostering vocations and organizing volunteers, we give food to the poor, hope to the needy, and bring our neighborhood children closer to God.

Growth in the Church

With the help of St. Joseph and many others, we were blessed to acquire property in Bethel, OH! Alongside the renovations at Old St. Mary’s, this new convent will provide rest for weary souls and allow us to expose all to the beauty of God’s creation.
