The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm recently celebrated Foundation Day September 3, 2012 at Saint Patrick’s Manor. The Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap. was the main celebrant and it was a great honor to have him among us! This Foundation day was extra special this year as our Foundress was recognized by Pope Benedict XVI with the title “Venerable” on June 28, 2012. Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa founded our community eighty three years ago in 1929. It has been a wonderful mission experience for all of us these past six months, learning about our mission of care for our elderly from the Staff and Sisters at St. Patrick's Manor, and to witness their love and dedication. Our Foundress would be proud of the way her philosophy of care is being lived out at St. Patrick's. Soon we will be returning to the Motherhouse to begin our Novitiate. Stay posted!
