In Sassone (Rome) from September 15 to 20, 2018, an International Congress of Carmelite Laity was celebrated, with the participation of some 250 people from 24 different nations around the world, mostly lay people and also some Carmelite friars and sisters.

The theme of the Congress was "Our Lady of Mount Carmelo: Mother of the Family".

The objective of the meeting was to deepen the Marian spirituality of our Order, strengthen the bonds of international fraternity among the various national and provincial groups and encourage the multiplying element of the laity within the Carmelite Family.
