During the General Congregation of the Order at Niagara Falls, Canada, last September, an on-going formation course in the Holy Land from 29th August to 12th September 2012 was announced. In a letter to the provincials last November inviting them to send participants to this course it stated that the theme of the programme would be Back to the Sources, with the time divided between Mount Carmel and Jerusalem. The course will be experiential, following a prayerful and reflective journey to the places of biblical and Carmelite interest. The programme will be led by some members of the International Formation Commission, and by an official Carmelite guide.
Members of the Order wishing to participate in this course should do so through their local provincials, commissaries or delegates sending their application to the Secretary General, Fr. Mario Alfarano at [email protected]. Applications will be received up until 1st April 2012.
