The first Canadian Carmelite is ordained
The ripples of September 3, 2022, will appear not only in the Carmelites of the Canadian Delegation but also in the Carmelites of the Karnataka Goa province. It was the day of Deacon Frank Sharma's priestly ordination as Canada's first Carmelite. The ordination ceremony began at 10:00 a.m. in Edmonton's magnificent St. Joseph's Basilica. Deacon Frank Sharma was ordained by His Eminence Richard Smith, Archbishop. The concelebrants were Rev. Fr. Jerald D'Souza, Delegate Provincial, Fr. Rudolf D'Souza, Councillor, and other Carmelites and Diocesan priests. The newly ordained priest was vested by Fr. Roshan D'Souza, Superior of Mount Carmel Spirituality Centre in Edmonton.

The ceremony was attended by a large number of priests, 19 of whom were Carmelites. Besides the family and relatives of Deacon Frank Sharma, there were around 400 lay faithful who witnessed the occasion. The spiritual celebration concluded at 11:25 a.m., immediately after lunch was served to attendees in the Basilica's hall, and was followed by cake cutting. Indeed, the blessing of a new Priest was a proud moment for Karnataka Goa province and the Carmelites of the Canadian Delegation. We thank God for His abundant blessings. We congratulate Fr Frank Sharma and accompany him through our prayers.
