Slideshow | Entrance into Novitiate 2013
The morning of the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16th, dawned sunny and clear, enhancing the joy that was already so palpable. On this most meaningful of Carmelite Feasts, four postulants became novices in a beautiful ceremony in our Motherhouse Chapel at the Sacred Heart Retreat House in Alhambra, California. Our new novices received their new names as follows:
Gabriela Batres - Sister Maria Augustine of the Holy Family, OCD
Cygnet Custodio - Sister Anita Mary of the Blessed Trinity, OCD
Melissa Ponce - Sister Luisa Graciela of the Holy Eucharist, OCD
Noemy Bañuelos - Sister Marianna of the Heart of Christ, OCD
Congratulations, dear Sisters! For those of you visiting us, you will certainly see an abundance of new white veils!
