HAGUE – The Discalced Nuns of the Carmel of the Holy Face of Jesus in Hague will be having a novena of Masses in honor of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face (commonly known as the Little Flower.)
The nine days of Masses will be offered by their chaplain, Fr. Leonard Eckroth, at 7:30 a.m. from Sept. 23 to Oct. 1 for the intentions of all the benefactors of the Carmelite monastery and in thanksgiving for their kindness and generosity over the past six months since the arrival of the nuns in March.
The Carmelite Sisters would also like to ask the intercession of St. Therese for their proposed building project which would consist in the construction of a monastery large enough to accommodate as many as 21 nuns. The first phase of the building would consist of one three-story wing that would enable the nuns to open a novitiate for the formation of new members.
If you would like to submit your prayer intentions and/or make a financial contribution to the building project, please write to the nuns at the following address: Carmelite Monastery; 2051 91st Street SE; Hague, ND 58542. Prayer intentions may also be left on their prayer line: 701-336-7907.
Like St. Therese, the Carmelite nuns in Hague seek deeper intimacy with God through contemplation of the Holy Face of Jesus. Jesus is the image of the invisible God. In contemplating the Face of Jesus, one contemplates the very face of God. Through their lives of hidden sacrifice, the nuns call down grace upon the Church and upon the whole world.
