OCDS at Margao: Marching ahead!
The members of St Therese of the Child Jesus OCDS community, joined in celebration on 29th of August 2021, along with their spiritual assistant, Fr. Silvestre D'Souza OCD.

Message from the Provincial

The Discalced Carmelites have a historical bond with Goa. Less than 30 years after the death of the great St Teresa of Jesus (Avila) - the reformer of the Carmelite Order, and even before her canonization the friars had reached the capital of Portuguese India. The founder of the Carmelite community in Old Goa was Fr. Leander, a native of Burgos in Spain. From this community in 1638, .......

Message from the Superior

Just a couple of years ago, when I completed my term as Provincial, I was asked to shoulder the responsibility as Superior of the Carmelite Monastery at Margao. This being my first appointment in Goa, I was a bit anxious! Now that two years have gone by, I can confidently say, the Carmelite Monastery has been offering a lot to the life and vitality of Carmelites and the Church in Goa.

Lar de Santa Terezinha

It was way back in 1947, when India celebrated its Independence; Goa still continued to be under the Portuguese Rule. The city of Margao, saw the humble beginnings of the dawn of a new institution, namely, Lar de Santa Terezinha. Fr. Jose Marie a devout Carmelite priest, dedicated to the service of the poor and the marginalised, found an abandoned baby near the Carmelite Monastery at Malbhat.

Sponsor a Seminarian

You are a practicing Catholic and you would have loved to see your son become a priest or your daughter become a Nun. Unfortunately, this has not happened or may be you do not have children! Do not be disappointed, you can still have a priest from your family by sponsoring a Carmelite Seminarian.

Carmel Matrimonial

On a daily basis, young men and women frequent the Carmelite monastery requesting prayers and blessings, so that they may find a suitable life partner. Today young Goans migrate to different parts of India and abroad for education and seeking job opportunities. When they want to marry, they come back to Goa looking for Goan proposals and find it quite difficult to find a suitable life partner from among the Goans just because it is difficult to get in touch with them.
