Photo of the Month - Mount Carmel

Thank you to Guild members, Hugh and Margaret Parry who sent us this beautiful photo of Mount Carmel.

The National Shrine of Saint Jude is served by the Order of Carmelites.

The Carmelite Family is one of the ancient religious communities of the Roman Catholic Church. Known officially as the Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, the Carmelite Order developed from a group of hermits in thirteenth-century Palestine; priests and lay people living a contemplative community life of prayer and service modelled on the prophet Elijah and the Virgin Mary.

Read more about the Carmelites on the British Province website.
