Dear Carmelite Family,
On behalf of the Preparatory Commission for the General Chapter 2013, welcome to the official website!  Our theme, A Word of Hope and Salvation – Living the Charism and Mission of Carmel Today, is intended to lead all of us further on the journey of transformation.  Included in this website are all the important documents and materials needed for those participating from near and far.  We have now posted the Chapter Prayer, along with the “Instrumentum Laboris”, for communities to participate in the preparation by reflecting and praying on the theme of the General Chapter 2013.  Enjoy this opportunity to interact with the Carmelite Family worldwide through this site.  May God continue to bless the Carmelite Family, and protect us through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. 
The Preparatory Commission.
