Celebration of the simple profession of Frank Sharma
The First Profession of Bro. Frank Sharma was held solemnly at St. Edmond's Church on April 7th at 11 am in the presence of more than 250 faithful. The solemn celebration began with the introduction to liturgy by Rev. Fr. Melvin Pinto and the beautiful singing of St. Edmond's Church choir. Rev. Fr. Jerald D'Souza the Regional Superior presided over the ceremony and Fr. Rudolf V. D'Souza preached a homily during the mass. After the homily Bro. Sharma pronounced his first vows and the Regional Superior accepted the vows and handed over to him the Constitutions of the Discalced Carmelites. After the Solemn celebration of the Holy Eucharist Bro. Sharma thanked each and everyone present, including the Novice Master of California Province Fr. Robert Barceló and a few members who accompanied him. Fr. Jerald D'Souza through the help of the parish volunteers arranged a wonderful luncheon in the Parish hall. There were a few members present from our Province including the Vocation Promoter Fr. Steny Mascarenhas, assistant pastor Fr. Vincent D'Souza, a few priests from the Deanery of North Vancouver. We are grateful to the Secular Carmelites who also played a role in making this celebration vibrant and wonderful. We are also thankful to the parents of Bro. Franks Sharma; Mr. Sharma Ayer and Mrs. Fatima Sharma. A lot of relatives and benefactors of Bro. Sharma were present including a few who also came from San Jose (U.S.A).
