“Behold I make all things new”, these words of Jesus have always been important to me. Here we see an example of what Jesus is doing in our time to create something new in his Church.

I have known the community from the beginning and have had the privilege of accompanying them on their journey. It is very encouraging and exciting to see how the Holy Spirit has worked.

As a Carmelite, it is great to see how the Carmelite tradition has inspired and enriched this new initiative in the Church.

As a Religious at this time in history, I am very aware that God is calling many people to religious life but they need help to discern that journey and support in the various steps they need to make.

As a priest I have experienced the support, friendship and inspiration their commitment is giving to the Church.

This community has already given much fruit in the Church and I am filled with hope and confidence for its future.
