Carmelites form one of the ancient religious order in the Catholic Church. We are living a life in allegiance to Jesus Christ based on the Catholic faith and Carmelite Rule. As Carmelites, we follow the footsteps of Prophet Elijah who zealosly proclaimed the Lord God of hosts and gave the people around him a clear vision of the Divine presnce among them. Officially, we are called The Order of the Brothers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. As the very name indicates, Carmelites keep a very special bond with the Mother of God. Carmelite Scapular remains as one of the major contributions to the popular catholic piety from the Carmelites. This website gives a lot more info about Carmelite Order, its charism ans different ministries. We welcome you to explore them, by yourself!
