Seven young men were received into the Carmelite novitiate, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Midddletown, NY during Vespers on Sunday, June 7th, 2015. Many Carmelites from the two North American Provinces of the Most Pure Heart of Mary and St Elias joined in welcoming the novices. The novitiate year initiates the novice gradually to the religious life. He is invited to walk with us in the life of the Spirit and to deepen the experience of his call to conversion, simplicity, faith, hope and love. It is in living a life of faith in prayer, community and ministry that the novice discovers the value and meaning of the Carmelite charism.
