Formation of a new Secular Carmelite Community in Lincoln
At last, we were able to meet in person at the end of June! Ten of us congregated at the church hall of Our Lady and St Thomas in Ilkeston by kind permission of Fr Andrew Hardy, for our usual monthly prayer and study day.
The Carmelite Contemplative Circles (Online) are open to anyone interested in Carmel’s 800-year old tradition. A new initiative by the Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality especially helpful during this time of isolation due to Covid.
Reflections on joining Carmel and what the Carmelite life involves from local members
Committing our lives to God through the promise “to live in the spirit of the Evangelical Counsels and the Beatitudes” doesn’t add anything to our baptism – it’s the way to live them fully
In the Nottingham Diocese there are three closely linked but autonomous communities of Secular Carmelites.
