The British Province of Carmelite Friars


SAINTS OF CARMEL

Across the centuries the Carmelite Order has given witness to the primacy of God. As is the case throughout the Church very many people live lives of faithful service and holiness. From these the Church chooses individuals whose lives can serve as an example to those of us still on our pilgrim way. A number of these come from the slopes of Carmel.

Readers may like to access the comprehensive article: Holy Men and Women of Carmel (a survey of Saints from the earliest days of the Carmelite Family to the present).

Below you will find links to those of our sisters and brothers who are celebrated in the present day liturgy of the Carmelite Order with the rank of memoria or above. They are listed according to the date of the liturgical celebration of their memory. This part of our site will expand to include other great Carmelite figures some of whom are from our own time. For the time being, though, we will begin simply with a brief biography and the Collect of each commemoration.
