Remembering Our Deceased Sisters

As the month of November approaches, a special prayer service in remembrance of our deceased Sisters was held at Saint Teresa’s Motherhouse Chapel on October 28, 2016. It was attended by the Congregation’s Administrators and Prioresses who were at the Motherhouse for their meetings. The Avila Sisters also participated.  The names of the deceased were read.  "Heart Cards" bearing their names were placed on a beautiful trellis.  The participants then processed to pick a card and to pray for the deceased Sister whose name was on the card.  The prayer service brought back long gone faces of happy memories.

May the souls of our deceased Sisters rest in peace! May they receive the reward promised by Jesus to those who loved Him.

“I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies.” (John 11:25)

 



 

 



ROSARY RALLY 2016

Saturday, October 22, 2016 | Comments (0) | Permalink

The Carmelite Sisters sponsored the Annual Rosary Rally held at their Motherhouse in Germantown, NY. It has been a custom for those participating to walk in procession around the convent property, enjoy and  admire the foliage and beautiful scenery the Hudson Valley has to offer, and conclude with the highlight October crowning of Our Lady. This year, however, the weather was not conducive to a procession and the event was decidedly held in Chapel. The Eucharist was celebrated by Father Christopher J. Iannizzotto, O.Carm.
As in previous years, tables were set up for the many free religious items and books. Despite the rain, it turned out to be a beautiful day to honor Mary! Thanks to all who joined us! Hope to see you again next year!
