Carmelite Events

Meet Our New Novices

Sister Helena - Saturday, July 06, 2019

On July 6, 2019 at 9:00 am, as the Universal Church celebrates the memorial of the virgin Saint Maria Goretti, ,our three Postulants, Sr. Doris, Sr. Sharon and Sr. Morgan,  received their Carmelite habit and religious names.  It was a private ceremony attended by the local community at Saint Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, New York.  Mother Mark Louis Anne, Prioress General, assisted by Sr. Lois Ann , Postulant Director, and Sr. Helena of Mary, Novice Director, received the new novices into the Carmelite family.  The Eucharistic liturgy followed right after the ceremony with Fr. James Hess, O.Carm., Chaplain to the Sisters, as celebrant.  The event was a moving witness on how God continually calls young women to follow Him in an exclusive way of the evangelical counsels, and how many of our young still hears and responds "YES" to His voice, amidst this increasingly confused and secular world. 

Join the Carmelite Sisters as we thank God for the gift of Sr. Sharon Rose Carmel, Sr. Mary Dolores Carmel and Sr. Joanne Therese Carmel to our religious community.  We pray that He sends us more good and holy vocations as we continue our mission of caring for the Aged and Infirm.
