Fr Maxim Noronha, the Vicar General of Mangaluru diocese, officiated at the solemn Eucharist along with other 20 priests.



In his homily, Fr Maxim Noronha said, ‘We live in love and we share this love with others in the mission of Christ.’  In this mission, Mary’s life sets a pattern for our life specially to stand with Christ in the poor and the suffering.


The choir by the novices and the sisters helped in greater devotion and added meaning and life to the Eucharistic sacrifice.


The Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel Sr Maria Nirmalini AC, accepted their vows in the name of the Church.


For this solemn celebration, the family members of the sisters from different parts of India, their parish priests, well wishers and sisters of the Apostolic Carmel gathered along with them in a spirit of thanksgiving to witness and share the joy of these 38 brides.


The celebrants of this great day were then ushered into the school auditorium which was splendidly and artistically decorated in tune with the celebration. In this ambience the finally professed sisters were felicitated with a greeting song by the novices for their audacious step in offering themselves totally to the Lord and for His service in the Church.


The fellowship meal that followed gave space and time for the brides of the day to bond with their loved ones. The joy of the final profession was etched into every cell of the celebrants’ face as their soul sang Psalm 145 in total surrender to the Lord, their God, and their All.


Prior to this day, 3 sisters of East Africa Region Sr Hellen Nthenya Mutunga, Sr Pauline Barasa and Sr Annunciata Eunice Wambua made their final vows in Kenya, on November 19.


Six sisters of Sri Lanka Province Sr Maria Niroshini, Sr Maria Juliet of Jesus, Sr Sinthuja, Sr Mary Biumi, Sr Aneeta Niroshini, Sr Thevaki are awaiting their final profession day in Sri Lanka on December 28.
