The Order of Carmelites

Carmelites follow Jesus Christ by living the evangelical vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. They work in 26 nations and are especially expanding in third world countries among the poor and the underdeveloped. From college campuses to military chapels, and from high school teaching to psychotherapy, Carmelite friars live out our commitment in a wide variety of services. They are 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. They minister with those who have much and those who have almost nothing. Like Elijah, they continue to ask others to make a choice — for God, life, growth, and wholeness — until the reign of God is established.

All Carmelites in ministry seek to announce God's presence within the human experience and denounce whatever injustice limits God's presence among His children.

St Thomas Province, India

The Order of Carmelites has its presence in India since 1982. The first canonically erected house of the Order in India – Carmel Nivas was constructed at Karukadam In 1991. The carmelite foundation in India was made a region and it became a commissariat in 1993. In 1994 Carmel Sadan was erected at Chettupuzha and at present it serves as the provincial house. Indian Commissariat was officially declared an independent province by our former Prior General, Most Rev.Fr. Joseph Chalmers in 2007. Very Rev. Fr. Mathew Neendoor was appointed the first Prior Provincial of St. Thomas Province of India.Based on our Charism-Prayer, Fraternity and Service, we serve the Church in India through retreat Preaching, various Educational institutions, and undertaking various Social and humanitarian activities at different centers.
