Welcome to Canadian Carmelite Charitable Society

WWell begun is half done! The Canadian Carmelites of the Karnataka-Goa Province (India) under the leadership of Fr. Rudolf V. D’Souza have taken another bold leap. The ground breaking ceremony of LITTLE FLOWER Formation House at Fraser Valley, North Deroche Road 10789 was held on 27th December 2013, the Birthday of our generous and benevolent benefactor Helen Chua Tiampo. Though the day began with incessant rains making it difficult for the invitees to reach the destination on time; providentially it all subsided when the ceremony began.  Click here for more

“In the Liturgical Year A in the Catholic Church’s lectionary of Scripture readings for Mass, the Gospel passage almost every Sunday is taken from St. Matthew. In the New Testament we meet St. Matthew only indirectly through the Gospel that bears his name. Matthew’s Gospel is one of the longest books in the New Testament and has exercised great influence in Christian life over the centuries. It has even been called the most important book ever written. Fr. Rudolf has already published Homilies for Cycle B and C and now with this publication the Cycle becomes complete. Though there are a number of books published to assist Catholic Preachers, the compendium of Fr. Rudolf is one of its kind, a treasure to be stored in the book shelf of every preacher.”: Rev. Dr. Archibald Gonsalves, OCD, President: IPCI; Provincial: Karnataka Goa Province.  Click here for more
