Today there are two communities of the Corpus Christi Carmelites in England - Birmingham and York - where the sisters are engaged in many different forms of apostolate, including parish ministry, prison chaplaincy, hospital visiting, and religious education. In each of these locations in England, the Corpus Christi Carmelite Sisters collaborate closely with Chapters of the Carmelite Third Order and Carmelite Spirituality Groups.
