Our Lady of Mercy Lay Carmelites

Community and Regional News — June 2019

  • Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The Novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel will be held from July 7-15 in the Governo House dining room. The novena will begin each night at 7:00 p.m. By popular request, this year’s novena will focus on the Rosary. We need nine volunteers to lead a topic — one for each night. Please sign up! At the beginning of July, I will send you all an email reminding you of the novena.
  • July Community Meeting. The next community meeting will be held on Sunday, July 14, in the Governo House Library and Dining Room from 2:00-5:00 p.m. This is just two days before the feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel so at this meeting we will celebrate the day together. Please bring any special foods you would like to contribute. Ongoing Formation and Lectio Divina for June are listed below.
