New Postulant Enters Carmel

Sister Helena - Saturday, October 05, 2019

On October 5, 2019, the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm welcomed in their midst a new Postulant! Katie Nicosia is well known to our Congregation as she had been a regular participant of the SALT Program.   In a simple Entrance Ceremony, she made an Act of Consecration to the Mother of God and Queen of Carmel and received the brown scapular of Carmel with these words:

"Most Holy Virgin, Mother of God and Queen of Carmel, I consecrate myself to your service. I choose you for my Mother and Queen. Accept me as your child and receive this offering of my body and soul, of my mind and heart, of all that I am and possess. Through you, I offer my entire life to the service of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Take me under your protection and give me your blessing, O most dear Mother. Protect me agaist temptation, deliver me from danger, assist me in my trials, and help mereach that blessed day when I will become a "Bride of Christ" and receive the holy Habit of Carmel. Then, fortified by your blessed gift to Carmel, the Brown Scapular, may I bring glory to God, to you, and to our Community. Amen.

We ask God's blessings and the intercession of Mary, our Mother, to be with Sr. Katie as she takes these first steps of her journey to Mount Carmel!

The Novices and Formators gathered for a prayer service organized by Sr. Lois Ann, Sr. Katie's  Postulant Director.  The prayer service was followed by opening of gifts, an enjoyable socials with cookies, tea and lots of fun!
