Lay Carmelites Surabaya.jpg

On Sunday, 6 March 2016, the Lay Carmelite community of St. Therese of Child Jesus met in Surabaya to have recollection. The theme was ‘Merciful like the Father’. The recollection which was attended by 50 lay Carmelites was led by Fr. F.X. Hariawan Adji O.Carm. At present the number of the members of this community is 60 people. Some of them were very old that they could not participate in the regular meetings. The Lay Carmelite community in Surabaya is the second oldest Lay Carmelite community in Indonesia. They meet twice a month, on the first and third Saturday of the month. The community delegate is Fr. Yohanes Radik Suryawan O.Carm.
