APOSTOLIC CARMEL CONGREGATION

History Of The
Apostolic Carmel Congregation

The seed of the Apostolic Carmel was sown in the heart of a woman who little realised the greatness of the mission God was entrusting to her. Born as Sophie Leeves, the daughter of an Anglican Minister, she was led by God first to the Catholic faith in 1850 and then to the religious life as a sister of St. Joseph of the Apparition in the following year, where she took the name of Sister Mary Veronica of the Passion. Being sent to India in 1861, she felt an interior call to Carmel, not understanding where it would lead her.

CARMEL - A CALL TO PRAYER

To enter the Apostolic Carmel is to enjoy the heritage of Carmel firmly rooted in Prayer; to be drawn to seek God above all things as the single purpose of our lives. Through Prayer and Contemplation, God invites us to receive His message and offers us divine strength to bring His Word to effect in our lives from moment to moment. As we grow in prayer, we become increasingly conscious of our insufficiency and come to the realization that GOD ALONE SUFFICES.

Inspired by the life and example of Mother Veronica, the Carmelite sisters reach out to the people, particularly the youth through education and faith formation in schools, colleges, welfare centres, etc. by employing formal and non-formal techniques.
