Towards the end of the beautiful month of June, —a season of new flowers and wondrous growth—, we held our 2nd annual Vocation Day at our Carmel.

With the participation a group of young women from the Diocese of Rochester, the Day was divided between conferences, sharing of personal stories and times of prayer, along with a video on our Community.

A great longing filled my soul: to love God alone, and find all my happiness in Him. I often repeated this passage from the Imitation: O my God, who are unspeakable sweetness, make me look upon as bitter all that this world can give.”
— St. Therese of Lisieux
 

The Vocation Day concluded on a Carmelite note! The young women received the imposition of the Brown Scapular of Carmel!

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel,
pray for us!
pray for vocations!
