The membership in the Asociación de Nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo in El Salvador continues to expand. Much of the work is done through personal one-on-one meetings.
With that in mind, two members of the Carmelite community of Centro Xiberta travelled to visit the current members residing in Santa Ana, a trip of approximately two hours.
Fr. Benjamin Salas and Br. Cecilio Hernandez visited seven members of the Asociación living in Santa Ana who generously support the ministry of the Carmelites.
They presented them with new material and encouraged them to introduce other people to the work of the Asociación. These personal visits are just one way the Carmelites and the Asociación members promote their work.
The Asociación de Nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo in El Salvador and the Association of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the United States were established to assist the ministry of the Carmelites in El Salvador. A variety of projects are funded by donations to the Association.
