The Order of Carmelites in the Philippines, Province of Bld. Titus Brandsma, is relaunching a reformatted and revitalized website that aims to inform and to give visitors an experience of Carmelite spirituality through relevant and engaging content.

Stories on Carmelite saints as well as of local Carmelites whose life are worthy of emulation are also highlighted in the site, as well as reflections on lived Carmelite spirituality written by Carmelite friars, nuns, and lay.
“This site is our platform to inform the world of our activities here in the Philippines,” said Fr. Perfecto Ll. Adeva, O.Carm., first councilor of the Order in the Philippines.
