Carmelite Schools Task Force 2013-2019

Raúl Maraví Cabrera

"Catholic schools, which always strive to join their work of education with the explicit proclamation of the Gospel, are a most valuable resource for the evangelization of culture" (Evangelii Gaudium 106)

Through our Carmelite schools, the Order is committed to give an integral education and spiritual formation to thousands of children and teenagers around the world. During the past sexennium we devoted ourselves to instill Carmelite identity in the students, faculty, staff, parents and other people involved in our school ministries.

In order to face the big challenges of our modern world, in his recent Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium Pope Francis urges the Church to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values.

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."
