Praise be Jesus Christ!

The Order of Carmel Discalced Secular is a community comprised of Lay Roman Catholics who live in the world while centering themselves on God and serving Him through the spirit of Carmel. We live under the constitutions of the Order and are part of the Carmelite family of Friars and Nuns.

As Carmelites, we seek to hear God in the quiet of our hearts through contemplation and prayer. We seek an interior union with our Lord while actively living out the ordinary events of our everyday lives. We take our example of living from Our Lady as a model for living our life focused on one thing, serving her Son. She is a woman of faith and obedience to whom we look as a companion and guide on our journey of faith. She is Mother and Sister as well as patroness. Her gentle presence pervades our lives. We wear the brown scapular she gave to us as it is a symbol of our dedication to her and of her motherly care for us.  - MORE

On 14th and 15th October the official opening of the 5th Centenary of the birth of St. Teresa of Jesus took place in Avila, Spain.

On the 14th, in the birthplace of the saint, solemn vespers were celebrated, at which the Discalced Carmelite General, Fr. Saverio Canninstrà, O.C.D., presided. He was accompanied by the Bishop of Avila, Jesus Garcia Burillo, and the Carmelite Prior General, Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm. This was followed by the Eucharist which marked the closing of the novena.
