The Solemn Profession and Veiling of Sr. Cecilia of our Lady of the Trinity O.C.D. was on October 13, 2018. This took place during a special Eucharistic Celebration for Perpetual Profession. It is when Sister made her perpetual vows and received the black veil which is the sign of total consecration of herself to God.
We thank God for this grace and we thank her family, friends and so many others who joined us on this joyful occasion, and shared afterwards in the festive reception.
CHRISTMAS NOVENA INVITATION AND PRAYER
Peace of Christ!
Dear Friend of Carmel,
Soon we shall be entering the holy season of Advent. In our busy preparations, let us take time to prepare our hearts and reflect on God’s great love for mankind in giving His only Begotten Son. Then we shall rejoice at His birth, for He is the herald of reconciliation, the victor of the cross, who came to bring the light of truth and hope to our troubled world.
We invite you to join us in our novena to the Infant Jesus, December 16th to the 24th, inclusive.
Come, Lord Jesus, Come! Make possible your loving presence in us and within our families, now and always.
We take this opportunity to thank those who sent the names of their beloved faithful departed for the month of November.
A blessed Christmas to all!
Your humble sisters and servants in Jesus , Mary and Joseph.
The Carmelite Nuns
