Our Communities

The Discalced Carmelite Friars were invited to Nigeria in the year 1988. Precisely on April 6 of that year, two Irish Discalced Carmelite Fathers, Rev. Fr. Charles Newell, OCD and Rev. Fr. Thomas Curran, OCD arrived Nigeria. After over twenty-five years of grace, we now have the following communities where we live and work, bearing witness to God’s grace.
