Facelift of Pushpashrama Chapel

‘How lovely is your dwelling place O Lord! What peace and joy to feel so close to you…!’


Prayer, being the primary focus of Carmelites, the Pushpashrama community keeping this thought in their mind set forth to renovate the monastery choir to make it more conducive for meditation and prayer. The work which was embarked on by the previous rector Fr. Alfred Menezes was completed this year, thanks to the eagerness and hard work of Fr. Joy Francis along with the active collaboration of the community Fathers and brothers. The chapel, which presently shines with bright lights, beautiful wooden framework and granite flooring, truly attracts a person to the Divine, like a bee to a flower. The wooden framework also hides the meaningful message of the chalice of Christ and the unity of the Holy Trinity. The images of Our Lady of Mount Carmel along with the Patroness of Pushpashrama, St. Therese are situated at the sides of the altar reminding us of our Carmelite call.

This beautiful choir was inaugurated at noon by Rev. Fr. Provincial Charles Serrao on 11th of July after praying the Office of the Readings. Fr. Lawrence D’Mello explained the need and significance of renovating the choir and invited Fr. Charles to bless the choir. Fr. Provincial after gladly inaugurating the choir, asked the friars to make their spiritual lives as beautiful as the choir. At the end, a final anthem to our Lady was sung after which all the friars joined together for a fraternal meal.
