Carmelites begin new chapter in B.C.

Archbishop Miller blesses foundation stone for a new priestly formation house
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, incenses the foundation stone of the future Carmelite formation house Sept. 11. 
Recently I attended a very important event for the Archdiocese of Vancouver, the blessing of a new foundation stone for a new priestly formation house under the Carmelite Order:
On the cusp of the Year of Faith, there have been several moments of grace in the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
So far this year a new Dominican Monastery has been built in Squamish, 18 men have been called to candidacy for the permanent diaconate, and now the Discalced Carmelites are making a new foundation, with a formation house for priests to be called "The Little Flower at Carmel Hill."
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, blessed the foundation stone for the house Sept. 11, noting the significant moment. "We are here to celebrate a new exciting adventure of grace," Archbishop Miller said. "The formation house will serve, God willing, many Carmelite seminarians."
