It is a memorable day for all of us because after two long years of preparation gradually they came forward to make their commitment as CMS.

We had the Eucharistic celebration began with an entrance procession with lighted candles as symbol of their self-giving to God and to follow Christ as light of their lives. Sr. Juliet Fonseca, the superior of the community gave introduction in which she brought out the important aspects of Fr. Palau especially his search, contemplative prayer, and his ardent love for the church. The main celebrant, Fr. Michel D’ Souza, in his homily highlighted that everything has its importance even in the response of Jesus to Judas on the occasion of Mary Magdalene anointing the feet of Jesus. He also congratulated the newly committed CMS for their courage and boosted them to go ahead with the inspiration they receive form Jesus, Fr. Palau and the self-giving of the sisters in and for the Church.

The members are carrying out various professions as education, lawyers, contractors, etc but they are also enthusiastic and happy in rendering their service to the parish as well. Most of them are actively involved in the parish activities. We pray that they continue to persevere so that many more may come forward to be CMS.

We praise the Lord for the growing members in Missionary Carmel!
