On 14 December 2017, two Secular Carmelites, Joan Ashby and Ligia Da Silva, made their Definitive Promises at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Benoni, South Africa. Fr Mari Joseph was the main celebrant at the Eucharist. All our Carmelite Priests working in South Africa participated in the celebration. Fr Boniface D'Souza preached the homily and explained the importance of vocation and the necessity for commitment to the Church’s mission.

The Celebration was witnessed by a large number of faithful including Carmelite Nuns from Benoni. Before the Eucharistic Celebration, Bridget Hodge, the President of OCDS community, explained to the congregation the nature of the Secular Carmelites vocation. Finally, Fr Arvin Tauro congratulated Joan and Ligia and encouraged lay faithful to join the Secular Order. The Celebration was rounded off with a delicious finger supper.
