Dallas Carmelite Christmas schedule AND they need your help! December 17, 2013

Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, Liturgy, religious, Tradition, Virtue.

The Masses below are NO, offered by Carmelite priests.  The nuns could use a lot of food for their upcoming Christmas feast.  The nuns are usually on a very restrictive diet.  During the Christmas season, this diet is liberalized a bit and they can enjoy more different types of food in the spirit of a festive season.  There is a list below of items they need. If you are local, and would like to help out, you can bring some of the below to the Carmelite monastery at 600 Flowers Ave in Dallas.

IF you do plan to bring some food, please leave a comment or e-mail me so I can let the organizers know what you plan to bring.  They don’t want to wind up with 200 lbs of shrimp and nothing else.
