On Monday, October 15, 2018 the Carmelites of the St Elias Province will celebrate the 20th Anniversary in Trinidad. A mass will be celebrated at 6:30pm at St. Michael’s parish in Maracas Valley where the Carmelites have served for many years. Fr Mario Esposito, O.Carm., the Prior Provincial of the Carmelites will be the celebrant. Parishioners from all the parishes the Carmelites have served in have been invited.

There are presently five Carmelites ministering in Trinidad in three parishes and one school. They are: Fr Gerard Tang Choon, O.Carm., Fr Hasely King, O.Carm., Fr. Brent Alexis, O.Carm. and Bro. Nigel Ali, O.Carm.. Fr Michael Kissane, O.Carm. is also ministering in Trinidad for several months.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
