Carmelite feast

Jul 16, 2013

Today (July 16) is the feast day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  This is a major feast day for the Carmelite family around the world, and a day for us to especially remember them in prayer, in gratitude for their prayer for us as they live in love at the heart of the Church.

The website of the Carmelite Sisters in Christchurch is well worth visiting. It features some video interviews with sisters, as well as a vintage NZBC TV documentary made in 1969.
