Camp Sancta Maria

Camp Sancta Maria (CSM) is a Catholic camp located in Gaylord, Michigan, and we serve kids from all over Michigan and beyond. Quite a number of our campers come from the Marquette diocese, and some of our camp counselors are from there, as well.


At CSM, our campers escape the electronics and digital media that are part of their daily lives.  Infused into all of our adventures and activities is an atmosphere of faith, as we testify to our young people that the greatest joy in life comes from having a personal relationship with the Lord. Sessions run mid-June through mid-August .

Marian Holy Hours

The Carmelite Nuns invite you to their annual Marian Holy Hour in honor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel to be held at the Monastery Chapel from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on July 14th, 15th and 16th.   The Holy Hour each evening will include Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, a Reflection on Our Lady, Rosary and Litany.  Father Vinko Mamic, O.C.D., a Discalced Carmelite priest from Croatia who will be here in the United States this summer visiting different Carmels, will conduct this year’s Triduum (three days of Marian Holy Hour). If you wish to come a little earlier, the Nuns will be singing some Eucharistic and Marian hymns at around 6:50 p.m. each evening.

Scapulars, rosaries, leaflets, CD's and holy cards will be available for the taking.  Enrollment in the Brown Scapular will be offered on the evening of the 16th for anyone who wishes to be enrolled --- which means acceptance of Mary as Mother. Wearing the Scapular is a sign of belonging to Mary, whom we desire to imitate and who will lead us to Jesus.  God bless you!
