Welcome to Missionary Servants of the Cross

“A Community of Brothers dedicated to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and spreading Carmelite Spirituality.”


On behalf of the Missionary Servants of the Cross, I would like to welcome you to our website. It is very exciting for us to be able to offer this website as it helps us to tell you about all the developments that are happening to our Religious Institute.


Please take time to explore all the Tabs as you learn about how the MSC’s came to be. Our history is young but we belong to a Spiritual Tradition that currently is celebrating 800 years of existence.


Join us as we along with the others of Our Carmelite Family give thanks for the great gift of the Carmelite Spirituality and Saints which form the Carmelite Tradition.


I invite you to continue to pray for us as we continue to discern and answer God’s Call while we serve His people in the Rio Grande Valley, but also as we spread His Good News calling others to serve Him as a Consecrated Religious Brother in the Missionary Servants of the Cross.




Bro. Hoss A. Alvarez, MSC
