St. Therese of the Child Jesus OCDS Community,
Margao: “Come and See”
On 19th of September, 2021 the St. Therese of the
Child Jesus OCDS Community based at Lar de Sta
Terezinha, Margao Goa, were delighted to welcome 12
candidates for the “Come and See” program. Fr.
Jeevan Tauro OCD represented the Spiritual Assistant
Fr. Silvestre D'Souza OCD who was away in Mysuru.
The president, Mrs. Martha Pereira joyfully
introduced the candidates to the community. The
Director of Formation, Mrs. Beliza Antao and her
Assistant, Mr. Roy Rodrigues briefed them about the
life of the OCDS.
During the Vespers all earnestly raised prayers to
God for the 12 chosen ones. It concluded with the
intonation of the "Salve Regina." Fr. Jeevan blessed
the candidates and presented them with a rose and
St. Therese's bookmark.
Coincidentally, it was Fr. Jeevan, Mureen, and
Jyotsna's birthday this month, and so they together
cut the birthday cake.
It was a lovely occasion with many smiles and much
love felt by all. All headed home keeping in mind,
that as Secular Carmelites, they have a particular
mission in the family and the church. Congrats to
all who were active in the vocation promotion drive,
and have been instruments of God to bring so many to
the Carmelite fold.
