Sister Catherine is one of our Sisters in temporary vows. She is currently missioned at Carmel Terrace in Framingham, MA.
On July 6, 2019 at 9:00 am, as the Universal Church celebrates the memorial of the virgin Saint Maria Goretti, ,our three Postulants, Sr. Doris, Sr. Sharon and Sr. Morgan, received their Carmelite habit and religious names. It was a private ceremony attended by the local community at Saint Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, New York. Mother Mark Louis Anne, Prioress General, assisted by Sr. Lois Ann , Postulant Director, and Sr. Helena of Mary, Novice Director, received the new novices into the Carmelite family. The Eucharistic liturgy followed right after the ceremony with Fr. James Hess, O.Carm., Chaplain to the Sisters, as celebrant. The event was a moving witness on how God continually calls young women to follow Him in an exclusive way of the evangelical counsels, and how many of our young still hears and responds "YES" to His voice, amidst this increasingly confused and secular world. With the reception of the Carmelite Habit, the new novices also received their new religious names: Sr. M. Dolores Carmel, Sr. M. Sharon Rose Carmel, Sr. M. Joanne Therese Carmel. Pray for them!
