Namma Kudla Gathering at Udupi Farm House
‘Fraternitas’ - The Namma Kudla regional gathering was held at Udupi on June 18, 2024. By 9.30 am all the friars reached from north and south east and west navigating their way to our newly built ‘Farm House’ in Udupi. Incessant rains did not deter our brave friars from attending this important gathering. All were accorded a warm welcome with a hot cup of almond milk shake. The educational session followed on 'Mobile and Cyber Crime' by Dr Grynal D’Mello Associate Professor of Nitte University. At the outset Fr. Alwyn Sequeira, the animator of the community at Udupi Farm House welcomed all the friars. Fr. Dr. John Sequeira gave a brief overview of the topic and introduced the speaker. Dr. Grynal enumerated the various cyber frauds and how to be judicious and keep ourselves safe while using media platforms. A hot cup of soup was served soon after the one and a half hour long study session. This was followed by a group discussion on a very apt and relevant topic of ‘Vocation Promotion in the Region’. Several proposals were presented and all were of the opinion that individually we have to take responsibility to promote vocations. The evergreen Fr. Dr. Gregory D Souza moderated the session. The Holy Eucharist was celebrated next in honor of our Lady of Mount Carmel. The Mass was presided over by Fr Jossey Rodrigues on the occasion of his forthcoming 74th birthday. Fr. Praveen Pinto the Superior of the Parental Community of Udupi Farm House requested all to pray for the good health of Fr. Jossey and sought the protection of our Divine Patroness over the Farm house and the members living therein. Fr Clifford Rodrigues, the Benjamin of the Region preached a short, crispy and thought provoking homily.

The Shrine witnessed a significant attendance, with children, and their parents participating in great numbers. The liturgy was marked by prayers for both the students and their educators. Special intentions were offered for the teachers, acknowledging their pivotal role in shaping young minds and fostering an environment rich in knowledge and understanding. The Mass was presided over by Rev. Fr. Siltan Noronha, a newly ordained Carmelite priest from Karwar. This occasion was particularly momentous as it marked Fr.

Following the Mass, the faithful participated in the Novena to Infant Jesus, which further emphasized the people’s collective hope and faith in divine intercession for the children's successful academic year.

"Discern Your Call" Vocation Camp at Carmel Hill
St. Joseph's Monastery organized a pivotal event, the "Come to Carmel Hill to 'Discern Your Call'" vocation camp, targeted at the Mangalore region. Spanning from the 8th of April, starting at 5 PM, until the afternoon of the 10th of April, the camp attracted 50 boys, including students from 8th, 9th, and 10th grades, eager to explore their calling. The inauguration ceremony, graced by Rev. Fr. Archibald Gonsalves, Provincial Councillor for Vocation Promotion, alongside the respected Superior of St Joseph’s Monastery, Rev. Fr. Melwin D'Cunha, and Fr. John Pinto, Bursar, along with Regional Vocation Promoters, set an auspicious tone for the event. Throughout the camp, distinguished speakers such as Fr. Archibald Gonsalves, Fr. John Sequeira, Fr. Deep Fernandes, and Fr. Michael Morris imparted invaluable insights, infusing the gathering with their vibrant energy and wisdom. Crucial to the camp's success was the invaluable assistance rendered by Rev. Fr. Ashwin D'Silva and the supportive presence of brothers from Mapusa and Madanthyar, who facilitated a seamless experience for all attendees. The "Discern Your Call" camp not only provided a platform for introspection and exploration but also fostered a sense of community and solidarity among participants. It served as a platform for nurturing vocations and guiding young minds towards a purposeful path. We pray that these boys may be inspired by the Lord to embrace Carmel in following Jesus.

Maundy Thursday at Infant Jesus Shrine

Their ages and walks of life varied, but they were united in their faith.

The faithful followed, heads bowed in worship. The faithful joined in humble adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Later, everyone engaged in silently accompanying the Lord, commemorating his painful experience at Gethsemane. The atmosphere of the Shrine, projected an air of intersection of the earthly and the Divine, where men adored their God, who became man and out of His love for humanity, chose to live on as a little Host!

Milaakat 2024
Taste and See, the Lord is good! (Ps 38:4)

Contemplation is an encounter with God which transforms us. It is a kind of letting go. It means resting in God, beyond words, beyond thoughts and beyond activity. It is taking to heart the words of God in the psalm: ‘Be still and know that I am God.’ An important emphasis in the Carmelite tradition is the need to alert people to the fact that contemplation, as God’s gift, is open to all. It is not the preserve of monks, or friars, or nuns, or those with plenty of leisure time. It is as much for busy people, leading busy lives, as for anyone else. The Carmelite friars carrying this responsibility of helping others fall in love with God through silent and contemplative prayer, held three days of contemplative retreat at St Joseph’s Monastery, Bikarnakatte under the banner ‘Milakat.’ (Encounter). The event was hosted from the 4th of March till the 6th after the 6 PM Mass. Frs Deep Fernandes, Jeevan Tauro and Richard Menezes guided a considerable crowd of over 200 people in intense prayer and reflection. With the aid of the Carmelite teachings taught by the experiences of its saints and with the method of Lectio Divina, the faithful were directed how to pray in silence and meditation. The event also involved interactive discussion with the people so as to understand their apprehensions and experience of the prayer and the praying of the Liturgy of the Hours. On an overwhelming note, there was a gradual increase in the number of the faithful participating everyday which was the visible proof that in the heart of everyone, there is an urge to relate to God who dwells within and the joy of this relation is shared with their family and friends! The success of the Milakat was nothing but the ‘inflow of God’s love’ in the hearts of the people who left relaxed, satisfied and most essentially LOVED! Having tasted the sweetness of being in the Lord's company, the faithful would henceforth join for contemplative prayer every week on Monday after 6 PM mass.

 About St. Joseph Monastery :    

The Carmelites in Karnataka: The Teresian Carmelites had established themselves in Goa and in Kerala in the seventeenth century. And since the region formerly known as the Carnatic, lies between Goa in the north and Kerala in the South, the Carmelites had inevitably to pass through Karnataka when proceeding by land from Goa to Kerala. And it is not surprising to find them residing at least on a temporary basis, in places like Bijapur, which form part of today's Karnataka. In his ‘Viaggio alle Indie Orientali’ Fr. Vincent Mary of St Catherine, has left us interesting descriptions of the beliefs, customs, feasts of the Canara of his time, and even of the scenic beauties and the cultivation and other aspects of life. But he found the Christians greatly neglected. And, on his reporting the need of the Canara Christians to the Holy See, Mangalore secured its first Vicar Apostolic in 1677. 8 read more
