The Carmelite Centre

The Carmelite Centre Melbourne is a joint initiative of the Port Melboure/Middle aprk Parish and the Carmelite Province of Australia and East Timor to facilitate spiritual journeys, personal growth and community in the Carmelite tradition.


We promote Carmelite Spirituality integrating Life, Spiritual Health & Wellbeing. The Carmelite tradition honours the individual, embraces community and welcomes people who seek spirituality and personal enrichment.

The Carmelite Centre Mellbourne offers weekly times of shared stillness and silence and regular Saturday retreats.

STILLNESS AND SILENCE events give us the reflective space from which we can act.



Mentoring Carmelite Students: The Carmelites of Australia and East Timor provide support and training for East Timorese students studying for the priesthood in Australia. The Carmelite Centre Melbourne is building a team of mentors to assist students with academic studies or other aspects of their training.

Supporting others: Many of our spiritual leaders are supporting others in their search for meaning and purpose. This is done by facilitating retreats, giving talks, having one on one conversations and raising awareness of social issues.

EXPRESS AND EXPLORE events allow us to meet others with whom we can think and talk about the Carmelite Way.

EMBRACE AND ACT events allows us to bring contemplation into every aspect of our lives.
