Claustral Externs


#1

Older vocations are often accepted for the position of Claustral Extern. This means they are in the external quarters of the monastery, and assist visitors. The extern at the now-suppressed Carmel of Louisville, KY, also helped with the vestments and setting up for Mass.

Please pray for these two new externs:

Carmel of Little Rock, AR (novice):

Dominicans of Los Angeles, CA (postulant):
