"We are a community of Catholic laity and belong to the Lay Carmelite Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Our mission is to follow Christ in love, to seek the kingdom of God, to sanctify and to transform the secular world through the participation of Carmelite charism of contemplative prayer, community and ministry. 

 

Our community was formed on March 2019.
