Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus - feast of the novitiate!

October 1; Feast of St. Therese,  is the feast of the novitiate.
Sr. Marie Paul Thérèse here reads her retreat account.
She renewed her temporary vows after the Holy Mass. Loving congratulations, dear Sister!
Bookmarks with texts from St. Therese given to the Sisters.
Every year, the community is invited to the novitiate on this day
for a simple paraliturgy in honor of Little Therese.
This year took on another significance because Sr. Paul Therese bade goodbye
 from the novitiate to move on to her next phase of formation in the community.

After 5 years in the novitiate dormitory, Sr Paul Therese now transfers to the community dormitory. We accompanied her in procession to her new room, while singing the Litany of Our Blessed Mother,  to begin the  Rosary month.
In her new room (In Carmel we call it "our cell").
Our Mother welcomed her to the community with short exhortation related to her retreat account.
