The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm hosted a "Come and Rest in Him Weekend Retreat" at Saint Teresa's Motherhouse in Germantown, New York. The retreat began with arrival and gathering on Friday, June 23 and ended after lunch on Sunday, June 25. There were seven young women who participated. Our three spiritual directors, Matt Ingold, Sister Mary of Jesus, O.Carm. (vocation director) and Sister Helena of Mary, O.Carm. (novice director), provided direction to those who were interested. Sister Lois Wetzel (postulant director) was also available for spiritual mentoring. The retreatants participated in the Mass and Liturgy of the Hours, conferences on Saint Therese and the Eucharist, given by Sr. Lois Wetzel and Sr. Peter Lillian, respectively. Times of silence, solitude and community were also available.
We continue to invite and welcome those young women 18-35 to check our many opportunities of encountering Jesus in the many events we offer. Whether you are discerning a religious vocation or discerning God's will in your life, the Carmelite Sisters will accompany you in your journey.
