On October 1st, feast of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus, Alvaro, Luz Mariena and Monica made the commitment in the CMS in the chapel of the Carmelite Missionary Sisters in Ciudadela and accompanied by members of the local group and some members of the CMS of Es Castell. We also felt the support of the community of Sisters of Ciudadela and Sister Lola Jara, provincial advisor, as well as that of family and friends who were present at the celebration.
It was a simple, joyful and emotional Eucharist, where there was no lack of singing and smiles of hope and some tears of emotion.

The commitment suddenly became a co-responsibility of being a lay person in an active Church, of caring and looking at the neighbour with compassion and humility.

It was our joy to receive the CMS medal, together with the relic of Father Francisco Palau and the statutes.

This will make us remember and not forget that we are willing to do the Lord's will with love and hope, to be His instrument and in our works to see HIM.

We give heartfelt thanks to God who, through CMS, gives us the opportunity to be better people with this commitment.

Faith has united us and may the Virgin Mary give us light and teach us to walk in community.

Afterwards we had a fraternal agape, accompanied by the bishop of Menorca, D. Gerardo Villalonga Hellín.
