The Postulants have been enjoying the summer here at St. Patrick's Manor in Framingham, Massachusetts with a variety of activities.  In July, we spent a day of prayer at the Shrine of LaSalette in Attleboro, Massachusetts.  The Shrine is beautiful and has many outdoor areas to pray and walk, a lovely chapel, and a gift shop.  It was the ideal place to spend a quiet day with the Lord in prayer.  The Postulants have also been enjoying outdoor events with the residents: evening concerts every Wednesday, and weekly Resident cook- outs.  The Postulants were the "chefs" for a cook- out enjoyed by the Sisters.  It has been wonderful sharing these fun events with our Residents and the local Carmelite community.  It is hard to believe the time is going so fast and soon it will be time to return to the Motherhouse!


  1. Wow! That looks like a really big band that was playing for you all. I bet they sounded great - that is so nice. Love the picture of Sister Mary Cooksalot with the chef's hat. What a riot. Have a beautiful rest of the summer Sisters and Residents. God bless you in your work and in your play! And Sister Dianna your mother is very proud of you for remembering to wear your honkin' black work apron so you don't get grease splatters from the grill all over your nice postulant clothes. ;)

    1. Honestly! I have since found out that you didn't wear your honkin' black work apron and did get grease splatters on your Postulant clothes...some things never change...your mother is still proud of you. :)
