Background Information


The Carmelite Pilgrim Center, also known as Stella Maris, is managed by the Carmelite Fathers. The Carmelite Commity in the Holy Land is associated with guarding the memory of the Profet, Eliyah and devotion to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Three separate communities are situated in the region, Stella Maris, Muhraka and the Haifa Latin Parish.


The Stella Maris monastery keeps the tradition of the Prophet Elijah alive on Mount Carmel. Since the early days of Christianity hermits have been living in the caves on the mountain, just like Elijah, and the Carmelite order developed out of this tradition. The monastery is still inhabited by Carmelite monks and a beautiful church has been built over the spot said to be the cave where Elijah lived. The church is an attraction in its own right, and a visit to the little museum within the complex is worth while as well.
