The solemn transfer is scheduled to begin at 2:30PM and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered in the Holy Spirit Chapel of the Monastery at 5 PM.
The relics will be available for veneration at the Carmel on Sunday, November 17 from 10AM to 4PM. Thereafter, they will be available for veneration during those same hours on every first Sunday of the month, commencing December 1.
St. Therese, pray for us!
Blessed Louis and Zelie, pray for us!
