Missions

The way God calls men and women to commit themselves to the building of the Kingdom is indeed mysterious and beyond our knowledge! Eight centuries ago, some Christians from different countries, inspired by the Spirit of God and by their own desire to serve the Lord faithfully, gathered on Mount Carmel in Palestine. These were the first Carmelites. Since then, the Lord has not ceased to call men and women to follow Him in the Carmelite Family. Faithful to their call to contemplation, fraternity and service, these men and women have spread to many countries in the world.
The Kingdom of God has not yet come in its fullness and the Spirit continues to call men and women to commit themselves to the Kingdom in the bosom of the Carmelite Family. Indeed, in recent times, the Carmelite Family has experienced an increase in religious and lay vocations..... and, at times, even in countries where the Carmelites are not present yet! In order to face the challenge of these young people and to welcome them into the Family, the Carmelite Order is committed to several missionary activities.
In response to the Spirit who is calling these men and women from various parts of the world to commit themselves to the building of the Kingdom of God and to the service of humanity, the Carmelite Order has committed itself in faith and with courage to realise these projects. It is the Spirit of God who gave birth to the Carmelite Family and who for eight centuries has blessed and guided it. It is obvious that these projects are costly and will meet with difficulties, but with the help of God and of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the good will of the Carmelite Family and the help of all Christians, zealous for the spread of the Kingdom of God, all is possible.  If, in some way, you would like to help to make these projects come true, you are invited to contact:
