What a blessing you are to the Carmelites! Your prayers and support make our work for God possible.
As Carmelites, we don't focus on one ministry, such as teaching, or one way of service, such as pastoral work. Instead, we ask each friar to discern with the community where his talents can best be used for the needs of the world and the Church.
We're AIDS ministers, college teachers, communications professionals, counselors, foreign missionaries, hospital chaplains, peace and justice coordinators, police and firefighter chaplains, prison ministers, retreat directors and spiritual directors.
We work in cities and rural areas, institutions and streets, colleges and migrant farms. We minister with those who have much and those who have almost nothing. Like Elijah, we continue to ask others to make a choice - for God, life, growth, and wholeness - until the reign of God is established.
Here, in their own voices, is a special "thank you!" video from some of our Carmelite seminarians. Through your care and love, they become God's ministering hands around the world.
If you'd like to make a contribution specifically to help these young men become priests and friars, please visit our donations page.
God bless you,
Fr. Bob Colaresi, O. Carm.
