Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Pray for Us
O U R   C H A R I S M :
GOD ALONE SUFFICES

All that is beautiful and to be cherished in
the Apostolic Carmel is summed up in
Mary, Queen of Carmel ...


... whose hidden presence with us as in the early
Church invites and encourages us to efface
ourselves in service in the Church, so
that more and more the World will
come to know that God alone suffices.

THE APOSTOLIC CARMEL CONGREGATION

The Apostolic Carmel is a Congregation of Sisters aggregated to the Order of Discalced Carmelites ( OCD ). It was founded in 1868 at Bayonne, France, by Mother Mary Veronica of the Passion, and established in Mangalore, India, in 1870, by Bishop Marie Ephrem OCD.

CARMEL - A CALL TO PRAYER

To enter the Apostolic Carmel is to enjoy the heritage of Carmel firmly rooted in Prayer; to be drawn to seek God above all things as the single purpose of our lives. Through Prayer and Contemplation, God invites us to receive His message and offers us divine strength to bring His Word to effect in our lives from moment to moment. As we grow in prayer, we become increasingly conscious of our insufficiency and come to the realization that GOD ALONE SUFFICES.

Apostolic Carmel Congregation


Apostolic Carmelites reach out in a unique fashion as "contemplatives in action". This is our mission: TO MAKE CHRIST THE CENTRE OF ALL CULTURES and in doing so - to live a truly fraternal life with the sisters of the Congregation and with all men and women of all nations and cultures; God's overflowing love fills us with prophetic zeal to share this love with all; receiving even as we give it through education and other works of mercy and charity.

Today our work continues to flower and bear fruit in convents across the globe - in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Africa and Italy. We serve in Degree and Training Colleges, Training and Technical Schools, Primary and High Schools, Hostels, Boarding Houses, Children's Homes, Special Schools, Nurseries, Balwadis, Clinics, Creches, Needlework Centres, Community Welfare Projects and Mission Stations ...
