The first meeting of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Commission took place from September 11-15, 2014. Members attending included: Sr Jane Remson (President, Carmelite NGO), Mark Zittle, O.Carm (SEL), Franciscus Xaverius Hariawan Adji, O.Carm (Indo), Eduardo Agosta Scarel, O.Carm (ACV-Arg), Mrs Esther Martin Lozano (Karit, Spain), Sr Annah-Theresa Nyadombo, HLMC (Zimbabwe), and Conrad Mutizamhepo, O.Carm, General Councilor for Africa (Praeses).

The team discussed various topics: hopes and expectations for the next six years, the JPIC 2013-2019 Global Pan, cooperation with Carmelite NGO, the need for the appropriate formation in the area of JPIC in the family of Carmel, the desirability of engaging in some soul searching by Provinces and Carmelite family entities in promoting the work of JPIC; and the formulation of a strategic plan for the Commission. The hope is that, by the end of the six years, the JPIC Commission would have facilitated a process of reflection leading to the production of a Carmelite Handbook on JPIC to be incorporated in formation programmes. The next meeting is scheduled for 15-20 June 2015.

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."
