I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I have been given the ‘go a head’ to start a new Carmelite community in my area (TriState, California/Nevada/Arizona) from the Provincial Office of OCarm, in Illinois. However, I was not given any promotional ideas on how to go about doing just that. Of course I have my own ideas and I’ve spoken to two of the priests in my area and they have given me permission to put an ad in their bulletins. I read on here where someone mentioned an ‘open house’ where their local community puts on once a year to answer questions to anyone one who may be decerning the ‘call’.
I would appreciate any and all ideas (including your prayers) to help me get on with this endeavor. I have begun a 54-day novena in petition for a good turn out. I need at least 8-10 people to begin the process.
Thank you in advance, your sister in Christ,
