Carmelite Nuns seeking Priest Chaplain

The last time I played yenta for a group of sisters looking for a chaplain, the results were pretty good!  HERE

Today I received a note from Mother Mary Bethany OCD, of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Georgetown, California (D. Sacramento).

They need a new chaplain by MARCH.

I asked for some details and Mother wrote back:

We are requesting a (reverent) Novus Ordo Mass, which most of our Sisters are used to.  Our Divine Office is in English also.

Our chaplain would have the use of a furnished house on our property, a car, a stipend commensurate with his needs and/or our abilities.  We would hope for Confessions every two weeks, and a Benediction /Adoration service on Sunday afternoons.

We are located in the Sierra Nevada foothills in a quiet rural place, so our chaplain should be able to endure silence & solitude, with some limited apostolate to the little town of Georgetown if he is able.  Not necessary.

There are 14 of us, 2 novices in formation and 12 black veils, ranging in age from 20 – 85.

We’re dedicated to St Therese , we love the Holy Face devotions, we love St Teresa of Avila!

Our bishop is Jaime Soto (Sacramento) and he is aware of our search.

Our phone is 530-333-1617.

Fr. Yenta now steps aside.

I won’t do this very often.  However, when I saw their page about the restoration of a statue of Our Lady of the Clergy, I admit that my cold, black heart warmed slightly for maybe.. two beats.  I’ve been looking for a statue of her for a while.
