Our Mission

The missionary dimension of our vocation.

Our mission as Carmelites…In the Church made up of different members, to be the heart! Teresian prayer opens us to the crises that our humanity is going through; it leads us to welcome the Love of God into our lives and to become, through our union with Jesus, sources – hidden – of this merciful Love for the Church, for all.

…Carmelites on a mission ! Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face became patroness of missions without leaving her Carmel of Lisieux! but she was ready to join the Carmel of Saigon.

The fine voice of God and the call of the Church lead Carmelites, brothers and sisters, to leave their country, following the first hermits of Mount Carmel, following Jesus who, barely entering Mary, thirsted for make other saints and others happy… (St Charles of Jesus, meditation on the Gospel of the Visitation).
