MEETING OF THE SPIRITUAL ASSISTANTS (OCDS)
The spiritual assistants of the OCDS in our Province came
together for two days in order to plan about the growth of the
Secular Carmel at the Carmelite Provincialate, Sadbhavana,
Bengaluru, from 5th to 6th of December, 2017. Since there were
some friars who have just taken up the assignment for the first
time, there were input sessions on the first day, given by Fr.
Rovel D’Souza (Provincial Delegate of the OCDS) and Fr.
Silvestre D’Souza (Provincial Secretary), on the OCDS
Constitutions, Province Statutes and Provincial Formation
programme. There were discussions on various aspects of the
Secular Carmel and their organization. Some practical decisions
were also taken, which will be implemented in the course of
time. We thank all those who made it possible to participate and
contribute to the success of the gathering.
