Meeting of the Task Force for Carmelite Schools


From 8th through to the 10th of July, 2014, the Task-Force of Carmelite schools gathered in our General Curia in Rome. The members taking part were Sr. Visitación Baz from Spain (HVMMC); Paul Horan, O.Carm. (Hib-Zimb); Javier Garmon i Calvo, O.Carm. (Cat); Tony Mazurkiewicz, O.Carm. (PCM); Albertus Herwanta, O.Carm. (Indo); under the leadership of Raúl Maraví, O.Carm., Councillor General and President of the Task Force.

For three days the group worked on many details for the second International Congress of Carmelite Schools (October 2017), as well as on communication and collaboration among Carmelite schools around the world. It was agreed that a website of Carmelite schools should be created and integrated into the official website of the Order. The Task Force also discussed different ways on how to continue developing better school ministry based on Carmelite spirituality and how to create internationally standardized and competitive schools in this era of globalization.

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."
