For me, all vocation Masses are wonderful, but the Vocation Mass at the Sisters, Servants of Mary Convent Chapel has always been special. It is small and intimate. Msgr. Mullen and Fr. Arsenault celebrated a moving Mass. But above all it is the spirit of these holy women who have so little yet give so much. It is the sense of being in a special, sacred space, an intense sense of the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Get ready to celebrate Valentine's Day with a Mass and delightful dinner at Milburn Country Club where we have had this event (and our Memorial Mass and Dinner) for many years. The Mass is beautiful, the setting perfect and the dinner superb.
Carmelite Virtual Harmony—Briefly
Technology is giving Carmelite Nuns around the world a chance to be unified without ever having to leave their monasteries. A Carmelite Nun from Reno, Sister Claire, wrote the music for "Nada te turbe" (let nothing disturb you) to mark the 500th Anniversary of Saint Teresa’s birth. Virtual Harmony has united these women, scattered througout the world, in a way that they might not have ever imagined.
The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts selected Virtual Harmony for an Award of Distinction from among the 2016 entries in the Communicator category.
For the complete story and extended video of the making of "Nada te turbe" and for "Salve Regina", a second Virtual Harmony production, click here.
SI should consider a “Serra Virtual Harmony” of world-wide Serrans for two purposes: membership in Serra and praying for vocations. Wonderful tools for Clubs throughout the world!

We will post articles on this theme from time to time. Here is the first, The King Comes, le us watch with Juile, from the Lumen Christi Monastery, 36 south Boeke St. KCK
Serra kck can be proud
THANK YOU! I am so excited to say that because of your generosity, I have raised enough funds for vocations to merit an award that will mitigate all of my student loans! (pending Laboure's award process) I will start formation with the Little Sisters of the Lamb at the end of January! Best. Christmas. Gift. Ever. Thank you so much!
