Carmelite Communities Associated (CCA) is a nationwide association of communities of Discalced Carmelite nuns formed to support one another in the deepening of the Teresian contemplative life:
- We live the prophetic voice of the Carmelite charism in our witness of faith and hope in the Triune God
- We nurture relationships among our member communities and with the Carmelite family here and abroad. We collaborate to create mutual respect and practical support
- We recognize and honor our differences while working to strengthen our unity in diversity.
Goals of the CCA – as adopted/revised for 2018-2020
- We have fostered a broader acceptance of unity in diversity and the mutuality of the Carmelite family, especially by continued collaboration, friendship and communion among associations/federations at home and abroad.
- We have continued to work at achieving a representative voice in matters affecting our lives, the Teresian charism, and the Order.
- We have developed and empowered our members to be future leaders of and/or contributors to CCA.
- We have continued to provide active, mutual support to the identified needs of our communities, in particular, sisterly visits of each member community by the Leadership Team or delegates in the next term
