NOVENA:  July 7-15


Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Carmelite Monastery Chapel

Covington,  LA

Our Dear Friends,
It has been a great joy for us to serve you 
with a prayer presence in Covington for 25 years. Social distancing due to the Corona virus ruled out external celebrations at the beginning of this jubilee year. But your Carmelite Nuns have not been idle during these times of isolation. You and your loved ones have had a very special place in our prayers and in our hearts. Prayer, first and foremost, but also we were thinking of ways to express our heart-felt gratitude to you for your gracious welcome to Covington and your fidelity as friends through these 25 years. 


The feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on July 16 will be very special for us this year. We thank Our Lady for the 25 years here and for each of you. We invite you to join us in the Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel July 7-15.




Novena Prayer

O most beautiful flower

of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, 

splendor of heaven, blessed

Mother of Christ, Immaculate

Virgin, we praise and honor you

as our Queen and Mother. Help

us to persevere in constant prayer

for the needs of our world and 

share with you in the work of

redemption. Be with us, Holy

Virgin, and guide us on our way,

as we journey together in

faith, hope and love to your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.
