The Discalced Carmelite Nuns invite everyone to share in the annual private novena in honor of the Infant Jesus in preparation for the solemn Feast of Christmas. The novena will begin at the beautiful Carmelite Monastery Chapel on December 16, 2019, and end on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019.
The regular monthly private novena honoring Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Therese will take place at this time as well. All intentions will be remembered in the special novena prayers offered following the daily Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Those desiring to share in the graces and blessings of these nine days of prayer are requested to send their petitions to: Mother Prioress, Carmelite Monastery, P.O. Box 57, Loretto, PA 15940.
Every Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. and every First Friday of the month, Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament will be given in the public chapel at Carmel, followed by veneration of the relic of Saint Therese.
