A Call to Carmel
We, as Lay Carmelites, are called to the Family of Carmel to be involved deeply in the mission of the Church. We strive to contribute to the sanctification and transformation of the secular world. We do this by sharing or participating in the charism of the Carmelite Order. In short, the Charism of Carmel is: prayer (personal and liturgical); community (a love of those with whom we live and work); and apostolic work (solidarity with God's People everywhere).
The call to Carmel is the call to seek God's will in the ordinary circumstances of everyday life.
