Carmelite Communities Association
The history of Carmelite Communities Associated’s Charter of Life began as early as 1971 in Richfield, Ohio where the association had its first meeting after organizing in 1970. This meeting centered on the Teresian Charism. Each community was asked to dwell on a particular aspect of he charism and to present its reflections to the assembly. Thus, the seed for an articulation of our experience was sown. Learn more about the Carmelite Communities Association.

Generalate of the Discalced Carmelites
The Order of Discalced Carmelites recognize Santa Teresa as a mother and founder. Unlike other institutes, it is the only order that has for a woman founder and is the only one where the female branch preceded that of men. As we have just said it is written in the Constitutions, that define us: “An order which combines ancient loyalty to the spiritual tradition of Carmel with permanent renewal aspiration”. Tradition and renewal are two attitudes related to the Discalced Carmelites by the mother and founder of St. Teresa.

Archives of the Carmel of Lisieux, France
