Dear Friends,
On May 14th Rev. Fr. Johannes Gorantla, Definitor General concluded his pastoral visitation in Canada with a fraternal gathering at St. Edmond’s Church Rectory. During this concluding celebration Rev. Fr. Johannes encouraged all members to be faithful to Carmelite Charism and congratulated all for their selfless service and dedication. Fr. Jerald D’Souza, the Regional Superior made arrangements for a wonderful dinner and welcomed all members of Western Canada. We also remembered other members who could not be present for the occasion. The Definitor General highlighted some features of the Region especially focusing his attention on the two establishments; one at Carmel Hill-Little Flower Monastery that has been already canonically erected and the other where the process is on for canonically erecting the Mount Carmel Spirituality centre. He insisted that at all our places of pastoral ministry there should be minimum of 3 members present. This would be officially realized by April end 2020.
During this occasion Fr. Definitor General released the new book of Fr. Rudolf “Living in the Loving Castle” along with Helen Chua Tiampo.
