Centres of Retreat & Spirituality

Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, Jesus said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. Mark 6:31-32

Carmelites are often known  for their preaching of retreats, spiritual direction and guidance about spiritual problems. Naturally, this means a commitment to being credible witnesses to the Gospel we preach. When preaching, Carmelites try to share the fruits of their listening to the Word of God in order to help accompany others in their own search for God. As a result of our devotion to Our Blessed Lady, Carmelites often preach about Mary in a renewed way.

Frequently, Carmelites establish and develop centres of spirituality and study in order to take care of those who show an interest in the spirituality and the life of Carmel. These often include places to which all lovers of Carmelite spirituality can come and stay for periods of retreat and prayer.

Taking care of people’s spiritual lives is an important ministry for Carmelites. It reflects Carmel’s desire to care for all who are seeking God and who wish to deepen their spiritual lives.

Information on some of the Carmelite Centres of Retreat throughout the world, where people can stay for periods of retreat, can be found below.

(Please also check our Shrines and Higher Institutes of Learning as these often offer accommodation as well.)
