Annual Fund 2022

Monday, August 8, 2022 - 11:00

For over 800 years the Carmelites have responded to God’s call in Britain and worldwide and have provided a significant response to the needs of an ever-changing world. The Order seeks the face of the living God not only in prayer and fraternity but also in service. 

Every gift makes a difference


In 2022, we are looking for your support in four areas, and we would be very grateful if you could help us in some way. All donations will help keep the Carmelite Order and its work secure for many generations to come. These are as follows:

National Shrine of Saint Jude – we know that Saint Jude is a friend to all of us and he is the Saint of Hope. We currently have two areas that need work done to them to make them safe. 

Vocations – we want to ensure that the Carmelites continue to share the Good News of God’s love for all - now and in the future. 

Young People – the Trust is working on various plans including a Carmelite presence at World Youth Day next year, but also the creation of a community of young adults at Aylesford Priory. 

Where we need it most – the Carmelite Charitable Trust must deal with a variety of unexpected costs, some of which cannot be deferred. With your contributions this task is made much easier.

Just like last year, our Garden of Hope (opened in 2021) will be dedicated to those people who donate to the Annual Fund or for those people you have asked us to remember. The names are renewed each year. If you are able, you can add an extra donation for the work we are doing to the garden via our form.

Thank you for all your support and for all your prayers, without which the Province could not continue.
