Teresian Carmelite Centre - Toronto, Canada :: About Us





Who We Are

The Centre for Teresian Carmelite Education and Spirituality was founded in October of the year 2001 in Toronto in the Province of Ontario as a not-for-profit Corporation for the purpose of advancing the teachings of Carmelite Spirituality of the Catholic faith and the religious tenets, doctrines, observances and culture associated with the faith.

It is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of Discalced Carmelite Friars and Discalced Carmelite Seculars. The Centre is supported by charitable donations.

All educational services are offered by qualified Carmelite Friars and Carmelite Seculars who have received the Carmelite charism, and volunteer their time and talents to teach and share their Carmelite spirituality with those interested in deepening their spiritual life.
