The Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles
I met a couple Sisters (Srs. Mary Philomena and Grace Helena) from this Order some three years ago; they came to my part of the country to speak to a youth group. When I began to actively discern, I looked into their Order briefly (I'm just too Franciscan to be Carmelite. Sorry.). Theirs is a very traditional, orthodox Order with a great apostolate and charism. If you like to spend time with Sisters because, frankly, nuns are cool, you should check them out. And if you have recently begun actively discerning I strongly suggest you add them to your list of Orders to Contact.
I'd write more about them here, but their website already says it all.
Go give it a look. Be sure to read this page if current Catholic events interest you.
