First Mission Experience

                                                Sister Philomena Anne with resident

Sr. Philomena Anne is currently on her First Mission experience in Staten Island, NY. She does Communion rounds, visiting and spending time with residents.  She likes being creative and so she also works in the  Activities Department. Here she is shown wheeling a resident to the elevators after Mass. She returns to the Motherhouse on May 29th just in time for our Memorial day cook-out!

On May 15, the Carmelite pre-novices and Father Mario Esposito, O.Carm. invited us for Evening Prayer, recreation and dinner at their Formation House in Harrison, NJ. Our hosts were most gracious and gave us a mini tour of the house that used to be the convent of a group of religious Sisters.  It was a great opportunity to gather with those in initial formation to celebrate our common life and vocation in Carmel and as an anticipated  celebration to honor the memorial of Saint Simon Stock on May 16.
