Matthew Tonini is an Australian Carmelite friar who is passionate about living and sharing the riches of Carmelite spirituality – a way of entering more deeply into the mystery of human spirituality and relationship with God.



On the first Wednesday morning of each month we explore a topic related to the rich tradition of Carmelite Spirituality. Each month the session will be led by a person inspired by Carmelite Spirituality and so part of the broad community of the Carmelite Family.
