On August 16, we hosted a prayer service for Sister Michelle Elizabeth as her days at the Motherhouse wind down and she prepares to leave the Novitiate. On Saturday, August 20, she will profess First Vows. She will then begin her life as a newly professed and eventually leave for her first "Obedience" in Columbus, OH! It was a simple and beautiful prayer service, acknowledging Sister's religious commitment and celebrating a new beginning. Some Sisters took the opportunity to come up and share their sentiments, prayers, goodbyes and well-wishes as Sr. Michelle Elizabeth welcomed the Community's outpouring of love and prayers. We wish you well, Sr. Michelle Elizabeth! God bless your continuing journey as you climb the heights of Mount Carmel! May the spirit of our holy Foundress, Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa be your inspiration as you minister to our beloved residents. May Our Lady of Mount Carmel always be your Mother, Queen and Model as she continues to lead you to her Son, Jesus our Lord!
