As she was dying, the Little Flower of Jesus wrote these great words of faith: “I am not dying, I am entering into life!”   She knew her mission was just beginning.

On behalf of the Carmelites, I warmly welcome you to celebrate St. Therese's heavenly birthday – her feast day!

We would be honored if you would join our special Feast Day Celebration on Monday, October 2, 2017 here in Darien, Illinois.

If circumstances prevent you from accepting my invitation to physically join us, please join us spiritually from afar on October 2nd.  I invite you to send me your special Feast Day Novena prayer intentions.  We will lift them up to our Lord through the intercession of St. Therese for nine days prior beginning on September 23rd.

As the Little Flower poured out her life generously to God and the Church, I am asking you to give generously to honor our beloved St. Therese, and to continue her “shower of roses” through the Gospel ministry of her Carmelites.

Your generosity helps to build and support schools, churches, religious centers, and many more vital Carmelite ministries that help share the “little way” of St. Therese.

From her full life with God in heaven, she will surely smile on your faith-filled and giving heart.

St. Therese Feast Day
