Placing a stone at the Memorial of the concentration camp in Dachau

On August 2, 2018 the Prior General, Fernando Millan Romeral, O.Carm, and the group of the international Carmelite students come from 25 different countries visited the concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. Fr. Fernando led the group in procession to the Memorial of the concentration camp to unveil the stone which recalls the ten Carmelites ( eight Poles, and two Dutchmen) who had been in this place of suffering and oppression.

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."
