Young Carmelites help with flood crisis

timorlesteflood01 350Our young Carmelites in Timor-Leste have been helping to distribute food and household goods and clean and rebuild houses following the devastating floods in Timor-Leste. The local parish in Hera has become a refugee centre for many people who have lost everything in the disaster. Closer to Dili, our Carmelites in Fatuhada have also been helping out with food, clothing and transport for people affected by the crisis.

Many refugees have gathered at religious houses seeking shelter and food. Due to the COVID risk masses and religious gatherings are suspended, but our Carmelites have been going among the people offering what support they can.

You can help our Carmelites in Timor-Leste in their efforts to offer comfort and concrete support to the people of Timor-Leste. Please make your donation here: https://timor-floods-emergency-appeal.raisely.com. Thank you for helping us to help them.

Carmelite Rule

A rule of life was given to the early Carmelites by St Albert Avogadro, Patriach of Jerusalem between the years 1206 - 1214. It was finally approved by Pope Innocent in 1247 and later underwent mitigations which were not in the original text.

The Carmelite Rule states that is basic for a Carmelite to "live a life of allegiance to Jesus Christ - how, pure in heart and stout in conscience, he must be unswerving in the service of his Master" [no.2].

Safeguarding

The Carmelites of Australia and Timor-Leste are committed to the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults from all forms of abuse and mistreatment.
