Final Profession
On 7th of April 2021, eight sisters of Carmelite Sisters of Charity – Vedruna, professed their Final Commitment to the Lord in St. Xavier’s Church Navarangpura. The theme chosen by the sisters was “Called to rekindle the embers of the hearth.”
It was a homely celebration where Bishop Rethnaswamy presided over the Eucharistic and implored God’s blessings on the sisters. The parish priest Fr. Jose Panadan in his homily stressed on the simplicity of the celebration which itself adds to the solemnity of the celebration. Keeping to the theme he encouraged them to become aware of the elements that can extinguish the fire, so to keep up the fire of God’s love burning within, so as to be able to rekindle the light in others.
Shortly after the mass the sisters were felicitated in the convent, which was followed by a fellowship meal. We are grateful to all those who participated and graced the occasion with their presence.
