NEW OCDS PROVINCIAL COUNCIL elected!

The Secular Carmel of our Province has crossed another milestone. 14 members in Definitive Promise, from four communities (Mysuru, Mangaluru, Margao and Mira Road) gathered at Sadbhavana, Bengaluru on 27th of July, 2019.

Since Fr. Provincial could not be present on account of a death in his family, Fr. Rovel DíSouza OCD, the Delegate Provincial of the Secular Carmel in our Province, presided over the elections that were held for the new OCDS Provincial Council.

It can be recalled that 3 years ago, the Provincial had nominated 4 members to the first OCDS Provincial Council, after receiving proposals from the above local communities.
They were:
Mrs. Jane Sequeira (Mangaluru): President
Mrs. Elizabeth Santos (Margao): Secretary and Councillor for Apostolate
Mrs. Sofia Lora DíSa (Mira Road - Konkani): Treasurer and Councillor for Formation
Mrs. Victoria DíCosta (Mysuru): Councillor for Spirituality and Community Life

Their term expired in June 2019. We are very grateful to them for their selfless service in the past three years. They have contributed a lot and the Secular Carmel has grown because of their sincere efforts and dedication.

Now for the first time we had elections for the OCDS Provincial Council. The electors comprised the outgoing OCDS Provincial Council members, Presidents and two elected representatives from four local OCDS Communities.

The results of the election:
Mr. Rodo Pereira (Margao): President
Mrs. Lavina Noronha (Mangaluru): Secretary and Councillor for Formation
Mrs. Victoria DíCosta (Mysuru): Treasurer and Councillor for Apostolate
Mrs. Felcy DíSouza (Mira Road) Councillor for Spirituality and Community Life

We congratulate the above elected members and thank them for accepting the responsibility of co-ordinating the activities of the Secular Carmel in our Karnataka-Goa Province.

May the Secular Carmel blossom further under the protection of our Heavenly Mother and the patrons: Sts Louis Martin and Zelie Guerin!
