The local Community shall provide for the ongoing formation of all its members. It shall
do this through its monthly meetings, periodic days of recollection or a yearly retreat,
if possible. Members are encouraged to participate in any adult catechesis on the parish
level or in diocesan programs. Ongoing formation can be significantly strengthened through
attendance at any of the Regional or Provincial Conferences of the Order.
Many good books, magazines and tapes on Carmelite spirituality are readily available.
The Community Council shall learn of such resources and encourage its membership to avail
themselves of such helps. The Regional Coordinator is available as a resource person.
