Bishop João Costa visiting

In February, two O.Carm. Bishops, Archbishop Coadjutor Dom João Costa, O.Carm., bishop of Aracaju and  Bishop António Vitalino Fernandes Dantas, O.Carm. Visit the Carmelite Curia.


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."
