Carmelite Lay Community

Building a Relationship with God

Carmelite Lay Community

St. John of the Cross Lay Carmelite Community


People of prayer, People for others, People who seek God

The Lay Carmelites are called to the Family of Carmel to be involved deeply in the mission of the Church. The Charism of Carmel is prayer (personal and liturgical); community (a love of those with whom we live and work); and apostolic work ( solidarity with God’s People everywhere).
