Double celebrations for Teresian Carmelites

Trilingual Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows for Teresian Carmelites

The Solemn Closing of a Jubilee Year will be observed by Teresian Carmelite Missionaries at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 555 S. Slocan Street, in Vancouver on Nov. 7 when Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, celebrates a 7 p.m. Mass in English, Spanish, and Italian.

Blessed Francisco Palau
The sisters are also marking the 200th year of the birth of Spanish-born Blessed Francisco Palau and the 150th anniversary of his founding of the Carmelite order in 1860.

Blessed Palau founded the School of Virtue, one of the largest endeavors in catechesis for adults in the 19th century, and he worked actively in the ministry of exorcism.

His devotion to the sick and dying was legendary - spurred on by his own escape from death at the age of 20 when his monastery was burned down.
