Carmelite European Youth Committee Meets In Rome

13/2018 – 07 – 03

The Carmelite European Youth Committee (CEYC) met at the Curia Generalizia in Rome from the 2nd to the 4th of March last. They evaluated the work of the committee these past three years and they are now preparing for the next meeting of the “Awakening” project. This will take place at Aylesford, England from the 15th to 18th August, 2019. Details of which will be communicated to the European provinces later this year. This will be the third “Awakening” project for Carmelite youth in Europe, completing the projects that have already taken place at Fatima (Portugal) in 2014 and San Felice (Italy) in 2015. The project followed on from the European youth Pilgrimage of Hope in Rome in 2010 and the World Youth Day meeting in Madrid in 2011. The committee, with John Keating, O.Carm. as chair, are now developing a longer-term project to promote our spirituality among young people. To this end, the committee will meet again next November in Vila-Real, Spain. The members are: Sabrina Rubio Perez, Daniela Pereira, Tommaso Bacci and Carmelites;  Dave Twohig, Luca Sciarelli and João Costa. Collaborating with the committee, at this time, is David Oliver, O.Carm. of the ACV Province.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
