A Long-Standing Tradition
Our sisters have had the four Novenas from the very beginning of our foundation in 1950. The Carmelite Bulletin was originally hand-drawn and handwritten by the sisters. Sr. Therese was the main artist.
The sisters mailed it themselves ... a labor of love! They continued through the years, eventually making progress with the help of modern technology.
The sisters now have a computer and printer for the writing and design, and continue to do all the mailing preparation by hand. We are especially grateful to our printing friends of many years at CustomXM (to us they're still "Custom Printing").
