Carmelite Events

Congregational Jubilee Celebrations

Sister Helena - Monday, June 10, 2013

Saint Teresa’s Motherhouse hosted the 25, 50, 60 and 75 years of religious jubilees of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm on June 8, 2013.  What a beautiful day filled with sunshine and joy!  The principal celebrant was Most Reverend Robert F. Hennessey, Auxiliary Bishop of Boston.  Also present was retired Archbishop Harry J.  Flynn of Minneapolis, the Carmelite Friars, Novices and pre-Novices, and invited members of the Clergy.   The Chapel was filled with Carmelite Sisters and the Jubilarians invited friends and family members.  The celebration required exceptional planning considering a larger group of Jubilarians this year. But as in times past, every piece fell in their rightful place!  The obvious theme of thanksgiving was in each and every one’s mind and heart as we listened to the Word of God in the Eucharistic Celebration, considered the faithful years of dedicated service to the elderly and the Church, and the graces and blessings God continues to bestow on the Congregation.  In the words of Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, “my soul magnifies the Lord. My spirit rejoices in God my Savior.  Holy is His Name!”
