On May 30th, the Carmelite Sisters celebrated the jubilee of some of our members at St. Teresa's Motherhouse, Germantown, NY. The beautiful day was heaven sent as Sisters, family and friends joined together in honoring our 70th, 60th and 50th Jubilarians. The Most Rev. Thomas Daily, D.D, Bishop Emeritus of Brooklyn, was the Principal Celebant along with many other invited Priests who concelebrated t
he Mass. The liturgy was enhanced by the magnificent music of the instrumentalists and melodious voices of the Community Choir. Rev. Michael Kissane, O.Carm delivered an inspiring homily touching on the Gospel narrative of Mary's visitation to her cousin Elizabeth. Mary's "Magnificat" was the theme of the day and the sentiment of our Jubilarians as they, like Mary, proclaim the greatness of the Lord for all the wonderful things he has done to each of them and through them in their many years of service to God's elderly.
Following the liturgical celebration, a feast was provided for all as we continued to enjoy the day in the spirit of great joy and hospitality.
