Carmelite Campus News
I hope all is well with you and your loved ones. Our Walk with Jesus event on our Darien campus scheduled for Friday, April 3rd has been cancelled.
The National Shrine of St. Therese will be closed March 16-22, 2020.
Thank you to all who attended our celebration for the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Many came to our procession and Mass. If you were unable to attend, please know we were praying for you on this special day.
This year’s Walk with Jesus was a cold day, but we had an amazing turnout. Our Carmelite Family walked the Stations of the Cross at the Meditation Garden at the Carmelite Campus. During our walk, many carried small wooden crosses as a reminder of Jesus’s great sacrifice.
We have finally broken ground for the new National Shrine of St. Therese – this has been a long-time dream! The new Shrine has been made possible by the generous donation of the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation. Rejoice with us and St. Therese as we build a truly beautiful Shrine where her many devoted friends can come to worship and experience her presence.
On December 2nd, we kicked off the Advent and Christmas season with our Christmas at the Crib celebration at the National Shrine Museum of St. Therese.
In honor of St. Therese and this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Fr. Michael Gately wrote 33 Days to Merciful Love. This is a do-it-yourself retreat to consecrate yourself to Divine Mercy.
