We are so pleased to announce that our precious icon of Mother of Perpetual Help has been formally enthroned in her new home, Incarnation Monastery in Beacon, NY.
Our loving Carmelite Sisters have been most eager to provide a fitting place for our patroness. After consulting with a very creative and generous creator of liturgical settings (he designed the chapel restoration here) OLPH has found a place which seemed to be made just for her. It is a niche outside the chapel in which a wall in newly painted blue sets the icon off so well. As people exit the chapel this image is right before them. This is such a wonderful Christmas gift to all.
This morning at the end of Mass the combined Redemptoristine/Carmelite community processed into the large foyer just outside the chapel. We were led in prayer by Sr. Moira Quinn our prioress. The icon was reverently named again the patroness of the Redemptoristine Nuns and presented for veneration by all the faithful who come to this monastery.
