Mission Statement

The Carmelite Institute Malta, founded on 4 October 2008, is a collaborative effort of the Maltese Carmelite Province and of the Maltese Province of Discalced Carmelites to promote in Malta the study of Carmelite spirituality and tradition. 

Its main goal is to offer courses in Carmelite spirituality and Mariology on various levels. The Institute cooperates with the Faculty of Theology of the University of Malta to offer an MA programme in Spirituality. Students enrolled in this programme may opt to specialize in Carmelite Spirituality. 

The Carmelite Institute Malta has its seat at the Carmelite Priory, Mdina.
