From the 15th of the 20th of February, just gone by, in the “Bãi Dâu”, diocesan retreat centre in Vung Tau (Vietnam) the 3rd International Meeting of the Asia-Australia-Oceania Carmelite Laity took place. The theme of the meeting was: “From Community to Family. How Lay Carmelites live their Charism in their daily life” The three principal speakers were, the Prior General of the Order, Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., who spoke about “Carmel and Family – a relationship with a long history”, Fr.Benny Phang Khong Wing, O.Carm., Councillor General for this geographical area, who spoke on the theme, “Building “Theotokos” Families”, and Fr. Michael Kissane, O.Carm., Prior Provincial of the North American Province of St. Elias, who, taking a lead from the Apostolic Exhortatiion, “Amoris Laetitia”- focused on St. Therese of Lisieux and Blessed Titus Brandsma, as Carmelite examples of a family based spirituality. In addition, various lay Carmelites from different communities shared their experiences in a way that was very enriching. Each input was followed by work in groups and reflection in common.

Some 170 people took part in the event, mainly from the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand). The very impressive preparation and organisation by the Vietnamese friars and the Donum Dei missionaries made this a very important time of reflection and fraternity for the growth of the Carmelite Family in this part of the world.
