Monastery Updates 7/14/2024

Dear Friends,

THE BEAUTY OF GOD’S HOUSE:  This past week Mother Superior of all the Passionist Nuns convents in the world made a visitation of our Passionist Nuns here in Carrick. Mother Joyce, Superior here, called and asked if I could show Mother Catherine Marie and Sr. Daniela this Passionist Monastery and Retreat House. On Thursday, I took 4 Nuns on a tour. They said how beautiful the church was and the gardens and how Passionist it all was. The solitude of the gardens and the beauty of the newly renovated church were very impressive to them. 

Monastery Updates   6.23.2024

Dear Friends,

BL. SACRAMENT PROCESSION IN OUR GARDEN – SUNDAY, JUNE 30TH:
Following the 10:30 Mass next Sunday, we will have a procession through our beautiful gardens carrying the monstrance with the Eucharist. It will be prayerful with some singing. Then we will have refreshments outside. We had hoped to have this for Corpus Christi. Everything is ready now and our gardens beautified. I thank all those who worked and contributed to the beauty. A beautiful to honor Christ in the Eucharist. All are welcome. 

Next weekend June 29/30, the Diocesan second collection will be for Peter’s Pence. “The faithful’s offerings to the Holy Father are destined to Church needs, to humanitarian initiatives, and social promotion projects, as well as to the support of the Holy See.” (USCCB, 2020).

Retreat Center

Paul of the Cross, founder of the Passionists, always wished his monasteries to be places of hospitality. The same applies for our retreat center. We have a variety of retreats for men, women, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and many day events as well.
