The Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Panama will prepare hosts for the World Youth Day

On the 25th of January 2017, with six foundresses coming from Ecuador, life began in the Teresian Carmelite nuns’ monastery of St Joseph and Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity, in the Panamanian diocese of Colón-Kuna Yala.

As the main work to sustain themselves, the sisters complement the production of bread with wafers for the celebration of Mass. So, the next World Youth Day, to be celebrated in Panama, offers an optimal occasion for the sale of hosts, which would help the sisters face the expenses of daily life, as well as the debts contracted through the work carried out in the monastery, as well as the buying of industrial machines for the production of hosts, etc. For the community, also, it would be a beautiful way of taking part in such an important event.

We can help the sisters financially through this cheque account: Banco General de Panamá, Diócesis de Colón-Kuna Yala (Carmelitas Descalzas), account number: 03-27-01-115350-3. For additional information, write to: carmelitas.panama@gmail.com.
