The Will of God is Our Peace.
Welcome to Our Carmel of St. Thomas, Apostle
Our main source of income is from Baking Altar Breads.
Work is done in Silence & Solitude.
The ingredients for Altar Bread making are only the mixture of wheaten flour and water.
Two iron machines, heated bake them.
The cooked Plaques are then put in the humidifier room to soften so that they can be cut neatly without cracking.
The Cutting of Altar Breads, is done by a machine which has a sharp round blade.
The blades are in different sizes.
About 80+ Plaques are stacked together and the blade cuts through them.
The hosts are then sorted, dried and ready for weighing and packing.
They are sold by our friends at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
