Lay Carmelite Community

Our Lady Mt Carmel

Most Holy Trinity Lay Carmelite Community #3115

The Lay Carmelite Order (historically known as the Third Order) is and association mainly of laypersons.  Its members, responding to a special call of God, freely and deliberately commit themselves "to live in the following of Jesus Christ' according to the charism, traditions and spirit of Carmel under the authority of the Prior General of the Carmelite Order.  The members, though not in Religious Life, choose to live out their baptismal commitment according to the spirit of the Carmelite Order.  Members are brothers and sisters of the Carmelite family who share in the same call to holiness and mission of the Carmelite Order.

Following the 8:00 am Mass, the general meeting of our Third Order Lay Carmelite Community is held on the first Saturday of the month in the lower level of the Chapel. 

Anyone interested in joining this third order can attend any general meeting and dicern if this group is right for you.
