Uyole ‘A’, is the place, where the next chapter in the Carmelite journey unfolds. Malisho, which in Swahili translates to “pastures” aptly is the third canonically erected Carmelite Community in Tanzania, a sacred oasis of spiritual growth, and quenching thirst for the divine. This community’s journey began in the year 2000, with the acquisition of land, where the Carmelites initially resided in the old residence until their new home was completed. The Community is placed under the patronage of the Little Flower, St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Malisho Novitiate Community is a haven where novices embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and growth in their Carmelite Vocation. Surrounded by the tranquil beauty of its name, this community offers the ideal setting for contemplation, prayer, and the deepening of one’s relationship with God. We are reminded that, like pastures that nourish and sustain, this community serves as a source of spiritual nourishment and guidance for those who seek a deeper connection with the divine.
