Carmelites In Action
Your generosity enables the education of Carmelite seminarians throughout the world. These holy men are trained in the Carmelite Spirituality to spread the word of God in the spirit of St. Therese.
For the Carmelites in El Salvador, one way they announce the Good News is by carrying out small group encounters with people throughout their country. Brother Roger Stanley Melara spent Holy Week 2018 in a small community called Los Naranjos and discovered how a Christ-centered life helps this small town.
At the at the parish of Transfiguración del Nuestro Señor in Torreon, Mexico, the Carmelites support a community project that brings freshly prepared food to the home-bound members of the community. Our hard-working parish members report on the success of the program below.
The Carmelites are doing wonderful work all over the world. One of their successful programs is “Hospitality Saturday” in the Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in the rural area outside of San Salvador.
Your donations support vital Carmelite ministries like the English immersion program in East Timor. Br. Sean Keefe, O. Carm. has shared with us some of the work being done to better the lives of the Timorese through education.
During her short life, Therese longed to become a missionary to what is now Vietnam. Her health declined quickly and she accepted God’s will that she would never realize that dream.
At that point, Louis Martin and Zélie Guérin were saints! Soon thereafter, members of the faithful brought up relics from each saint and they were incensed to forever be venerated as Saints of the Church!
