On the 9 days before the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (16 July), the Carmelites invite you to join with us in prayer. Every year we pray for the needs of our Carmelite Family in Australia and Timor-Leste. This year, in the midst of COVID-19, we are including the people of the world in our novena of prayer. Please join us during this time between July 7 and Thursday 15 July.
