The Monastery of Mary, Mother of Grace (1250 Carmel Drive, Lafayette, 70501) will host a special Mass to close the celebration of the 500th centenary of the birth of St. Teresa of Avila.
Friends of the monastery are invited to attend. The main celebrant and homilist will be Fr. Adam G. Gonzalez OCD, Vice Provincial of the California province of the Discalced Carmelites. Fr. Adam,
who is superior of the El Carmelo Retreat House in Redlands, CA, is remembered for the excellent novena he gave in Lafayette for the 2014 novena in anticipation of the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
In anticipation of the October feast day of St. Teresa of Jesus, considered the foundress of the Discalced Carmelite order, the nuns will also be making their October 7-11 novena privately.
