Carmelites Feast Days

Our Saints
Throughout history, the Carmelite Order has been blessed with men and women outstanding in zeal for God and the spread of His Word wherever they have found themselves. Now as ever, these saints are wonderful examples of how we can, in this world, dedicate our lives to Christ in living out our vocations in life, be it in religious life or in married or single state. Many of these Carmelite saints died, having surrendered themselves totally to the will of God, but the example of their lives and their words live on, constantly pointing us toward our Father in heaven. Below is a calendar of their feast days.
