Giving thanks before the liturgy began, at the centennial celebration at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception last Saturday, Prioress General of the Corpus Christi Carmelites Sr Petronella Joseph O Carm said it was “a legacy of love”.
Thursday November 14, 1919 was the date of arrival in Trinidad of three Carmelite Sisters from Leicester England. Sr Petronella said the Carmelites have received graces and blessings over the century. “Indeed, the richest source of blessings have come through you the people of God including the bishops, priests, deacons, religious our Carmelite family, friars, tertiaries, handmaids of Our Lady of Mt Carmel, and all of you who continue to journey with us.”
