with Fr. Stephen Sanchez, OCD
& Br. John Mark, OSB.
August 22 - 29, 2022
The Mary, Queen of Carmel Association held a gathering for the Nuns and young women in Formation
at St. Meinrad’s Archabbey in Indiana for a week of Spiritual and Human development, fellowship and adventure on the beautiful campus of the Archabbey.
We were blessed with the presence of the Carmelite Friar, Fr. Stephen Sanchez and the Benedictine Monk, Br. John Mark Falkenhain, whose wisdom and wit greatly benefited us in many ways.
We were also able to participate in all of the Liturgies that the Benedictine Monks offered;
our Carmelite identity was enriched and fortified by their joy and simplicity.
The seminar concluded with an Entertainment Night, "Carmel at the Archabbey",
where the Sisters showcased their talents and creativity.
It was a week that truly helped each one that participated to grow in their love for God and in thanksgiving for each one’s vocation.
" The joy of always belonging to God is an incomparable gift of the Holy Spirit."
Saint Paul VI
Formator Zoom Conferences
with Sister Jane Becker, OSB.
October 19-22, 2021
The Zoom Conference with Sister Jane offered very good material for the Formators and those who serve on the Formation Team in our Association.
Aside from the conferences, there were opportunities to share and ask questions, which was of great benefit to all!
The meeting ended with great insights and encouragement for the Formators to continue their work in Formation.
