Carmelite Spirituality

Let nothing trouble you, let nothing frighten you, all things pass away. The one who possesses God, lacks nothing. God alone suffices. (Teresa of Avila)

This month we remember with gratitude the first Carmelite Sisters who laid the foundation of Carmel in the archdiocese of Johannesburg 90 years ago. The Sisters arrived in Rivonia on 18th September, 1931. Moving from Rivonia in 1992, a new Carmel was built in Benoni in 1996.
We rejoice as we celebrate these two great events … 90 years since the establishment of the first Carmel in South Africa and 25 years in Benoni. Please join us in thanking God for all the blessings of these years.
