On Sunday 22nd May we celebrated the presentation and delivery of the relics of Father Palau to our parish of Trzebinia.
We have prepared for this event with great enthusiasm. We have already started from the first day of May with the celebration of the "Month of Mary Palau in our parish with the participation of the people. A prayer vigil on May 21st with the animation of the music group "Hortus Dei with texts from Carmelite saints and also from Blessed Francis. The atmosphere and the people who took part in the vigil were very profound.
Sunday 22nd is finally here, the big day for the Missionary Carmel in Trzebinia. An event that will remain engraved in our hearts. We wanted to commemorate with this event the 30 years of our presence in this village and the 150 añThe death anniversary of our father Founder. One of the most moving moments was the entrance procession with the relic carried by Sister Agueda Solas (the first Carmelite missionary who came to Poland), accompanied by Katarzyna of the Secular Missionary Carmel and Blessed of the Secular Carmel (a member of the family who gave us the house where we live). The Eucharist was concelebrated by several priests and presided over by Father Krzysztof Piskorz OCD who in his homily made us vibrate by repeating all together "I live and will live for the Church!" - an echo that will remain in the memory of this people and will continue to live and act.
We enjoyed the presence of the communities of Poland, CMS, Secular Carmel, families of the parish and friends. With all of them we shared a feast full of joy and gratitude. We received many expressions of gratitude for our presence and life in Trzebinia.
