The Benefit Approaches! (Aug 9 @ 1pm)


It is just three days until our Virtual Benefit.  Please join us and tune in

this Sunday, August 9, at 1:00 p.m. PDT.  A lot of people have put in a lot

of work, and you will enjoy the program we have prepared.

The Online Auction is now open.  It will remain open until midnight

after we have presented the Virtual Benefit.  We invite you to check out

the Auction items even if you do not plan to bid for something.

We Carmelite priests and brothers are grateful to everyone who has contributed

to this year's Benefit effort.  We are always thankful for you, our friends.

Without you we could not be who we are or live the life for God that you esteem

so highly.  We pray for you every day.  Thank you, and may God bless you!

Fr. Gerald Werner, OCD
