Founded 23 Mar 1594, on approval of a rule based on the Carmelite reform leading to the establishment of the R-XR1678 - Order of Discalced Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel (Discalced Carmelite Fathers), with which this is associated as a Catholic lay order of men and women. Subsequent rules, unique to the discalced third order, were drawn up in: 1742, 1875, 1921 and 1970. The original third order, created prior to the separation of the discalced branch, had been created by John Soreth and approved in 1452. Linked to R-XR3913 - Lay Carmelite Order Calced. Former name: Third Order Secular of Our Blessed Lady of Mount Carmel and St Teresa of Jesus.


Undertake the pursuit of evangelical perfection in the world, inspired and nourished by the spirituality and guidance of the Teresian Carmel.
