Bamberg Celebrates 750 Years of Carmelite Presence

In 2023, the Carmelites in Bamberg, Germany, are celebrating their 750th anniversary of Carmelite presence in the city. The proposal was to celebrate with several smaller events being held throughout the year. The year started on February 2, the day of consecrated life, with a meeting of all the religious of the diocese.

On the Sundays of Lent, various Carmelite saints were presented. In May, there were spiritual tours of the monastery church. On July 16, the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Bishop of Bamberg celebrated with the community.

 On November 3rd, an exhibition opened in the Diocesan Museum. This show will run through the  end of January 2024.

Two days later, on November 5, there was a concert with works by baroque musicians from Carmel to celebrate the anniversary. These included the Dutch Carmelite Benedictus Buns and Justinus Will, as well as selections from Handel’s Carmelite Vespers.

On November 12, the Carmelites of the German province came together to celebrate St. Theodore, the patron saint of the Carmelite church in Bamberg. This marked the ending of the formal  celebrations of the anniversary.
