The Second Meeting of the Prioresses and Novice Directors of the Monasteries of the Antilles


From the 9th to the 12th of January, 2012, the Prioresses and Directors of Novices of the six monasteries of Nuns in the Antilles, (Porto Rico and the Dominican Republic), came together in the Monastery of Maria Madre de la Iglesia, La Vega, in the Dominican Republic, for the Second Meeting of the Prioresses and Directors of Novices, coordinated by Fr. Rogelio Mur, O.Carm., Delegate for the Nuns of the area.

The main purpose of this meeting, involving the representatives of the different communities, was to study and discuss the ways in which the Ratio Institutionis Vitae Carmelitanae Monialium, is being applied since its publication in 2007. There is a proposal to hold this kind of meeting every two years with a view to increasing mutual assistance in the different areas of interest that are shared by the monasteries of the Antilles.

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."
