Web page for the preparation for the General Chapter 2019

79/2018 – 15 - 11

The Preparatory Commission, together with the webmaster of the Order, set up a web page for the General Chapter 2019. The address is: In this page, available to all friars and other members of the Carmelite Family, the commission has posted the Instrumentum Laboris,

which it is hoped, will help the communities and members of the Order prepare for the Chapter by praying and reflecting on the theme of the General Chapter. Through this interactive web page we hope to receive input from individual friars and communities, as well as from the wider Carmelite Family, for our coming Chapter, so that it may really be a time of grace for the whole Order.

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."
