On August 8-13, 2016, all Carmelites of the Sumatera Commissariat of the Indonesian Province met in Tanjung Pinggir, Siantar, North Sumatera, to participate in the annual Carmelite retreat. The retreat was led by Sr. Merry Teresa Sri Rejeki H. Carm., an expert on Carmelite spirituality. Sr. Merry helped the Carmelite friars to deepen their understanding on Carmelite spirituality and challenge them to re-reflect their vocation and ministries. The retreat ran very well and the whole participants were satisfied with the result. It was expected that after the retreat the Carmelite friars would be burnt by the spirit of Elijah, the prophet.
