It is with great joy that the Mater Carmeli TOC Community celebrated their canonical foundation on March 17, 2012 together with the TOC National Council and the community of the Carmelite Nuns at Mater Carmeli Monastery. After 6 years of perseverance, the community was canonically recognized by Rome.
The Rite of Canonical Foundation was celebrated by Fr. Noel Rosas, OCarm., Provincial Delegate of the Order. After the celebration of the Holy Mass, a sumptuous lunch was served. The day was also capped by a recollection about leadership to the members of the community.
