Upcoming activities at the Carmelite Chapel May 17, 2012

First, there will be NO First Friday Vigil at the Chapel, due to a rare wedding.  That may be disappointing to some, but may God bless the couple marrying!  It is a beautiful place for a wedding, that is for certain.

Other items:

Monday, May 21st at 11:00 A.M. : Sister Maria Guadalupe of the Infant Jesus of Prague will be “Rendering her Vows” to the Superior of this Carmel, Reverend Mother Juanita Marie.  Sister Maria Guadalupe has transferred to the Dallas Carmel from another Carmel in California.

Sunday, June 3rd at 10:00 A.M. : Sister Rose Marie of the Sorrowful Mother will be taking her First Vows.  Fr. Fabian M. Rosette, O.Carm, founder and prior of Mount Carmel Hermitage in Christoval, Tx, will be the celebrant for this Mass.

Sunday, June 3rd at 5:00 P.M. : The newly ordained Fr. Martin Mary of the Blessed Sacrament, O.Carm will be offering his First Mass of Thanksgiving.  This will be a High Mass with Rita Pilgrim’s choral group,  Voces Pro Domino, singing the Mass.  [Wow, a TLM High Mass , too!  Just stay at the Carmel all day!]

Friday, June 15th, Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus  at 10:00 A.M. :   Sister Faustina of the Merciful Heart of Jesus will have her clothing ceremony along with a Mass.  Fr. Fabian M. Rosette, O. Carm will be the celebrant for this Mass.  One of the brothers from the Mount Carmel Hermitage in Christoval, TX is the blood brother of Sister Faustina.  If you come early before Holy Mass you may go to the parlor located at the top of the west steps to see Sister in her wedding dress. After the Mass and ceremony you may go to the same parlor to congratulate Sister Faustina and to see her in her holy habit.

We went to the clothing ceremony for St. Veronica of the Holy Face.  It was glorious!  If you’ve never been to a Mass where a religious gets clothed or takes vows, they are so beautiful!  Sister Veronica was so beautifully radiant, so joyful, the Grace she was experiencing seemed to fill the whole Chapel!  It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend a little bit of time with the nuns in the parlor, too.

I’ve always wanted to go to the two Carmels in Christoval (there is also a Carmel for nuns there), but we’ve never made it out there.  But now the prior is coming to us!  Deo Gratias!

Pray that the good Carmelites get even more vocations!  They went for a very long time without any, but now they have many.  Pray for them often!  They always pray for you!
