Bishop Terence Drainey of Middlesbrough with York CSG in October 2009.
We bring together different vocations within the Carmelite Family - professed Carmelite tertiaries, friars, active sisters, enclosed nuns - and those who are inspired or intrigued by Carmel but who have not made a formal profession of religious promises. The majority of our members are lay (unordained) people seeking to draw wisdom from the deep well that is Carmelite spirituality.

Carmelite Street bears testimony to the Carmelite Family's
presence in York since 1250.


Our community was founded in 2006. In 2009 we helped to launch a sister group in Leeds and in Manchester in 2011. We have close links with other Carmelite Spirituality Groups and Third Order Chapters in Britain, and come under the oversight of the Provincial Delegate for the Carmelite Third Order.

We have a very varied and engaging programme of events.
We normally meet on the second Saturday of the month, excepting January and August.
