An OCDS Community is present in the city of Tamale and holds its meetings in the Monastery of the Carmelite Nuns there.  Some of the OCDS members will pronounce their temporal vows shortly.  All of them are deeply involved in their formation and life of prayer and community.  The call to become Secular Carmelites has also been heard by other groups who are meeting in parishes around Tamale. They have already asked for assistance in beginning their official programme as members of the OCDS.

Last month a new OCDS Community was officially established in Accra, the capital of Ghana.  It is composed of a group of people who have wanted to become Carmelite Seculars for quite a while.  The title selected for their new Community is Our Lady, Beauty of Carmel, and it will be assisted by the OCDS Delegate for Nigeria and Ghana and by the OCDS community in Tamale.

May the good Lord continue to bless Ghana with other vocations to the OCDS and help them to be witnesses of the mercy and love of God.
