Dear brothers and sisters in Carmel,

Trust you all had a blessed and happy Easter. Personally, I felt immeasurable joy to be able to fully participate in the Easter celebrations this year.  Thank you, dear God.

Many thanks, everyone, for graciously accepting the sudden change in the meeting date for May. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday 25th April – same place, same time.

The Solemn Profession of Sr Anne Teresa of St Joseph is on 1st May at 11am. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. A big thank you to those who are able to assist in hospitality on that day.

May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We ask of Our Lady to pray for us: for love in our families, unity in our Church and peace in our beautiful country.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel

God bless,

Maureen William, OCDS
