I am blessed with joy, and how I love to share it with others! I graduated from Thomas Aquinas College in May of 2017; I am now a Candidate with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles- serving our dear elderly in the skilled nursing facility.

Category: Faith & Family

Start Date: June 28, 2017

After discerning with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles for eighteen months, I am overwhelmed with gratitude to our dear Lord that I am a Candidate with these beautiful Sisters. In this period of Candidacy I am blessed to continue pursuing my vocation and discerning the Lord's call in a more integrated way with the community- living their prayer life with them, and working with the Sisters in the apostolate. Steadily, beautifully I am learning in prayer, classes, and experience more about the call to serve our Lord in Carmel. Through this time, the joy that had initially impelled me has only been fortified and ever continues to deepen.

I desire with all of my heart to serve our Lord with these radiant Sisters, serving the community through teaching, retreat work, and elderly care. This beautiful invitation from the Lord has filled my heart completely! I truly cannot express to you the great urgency within me to respond to this call as well as the overwhelming joy with which it fills me.

I graduated from college one year ago this May, and so I do have student debts to repay before I am permitted to enter postulancy. I ask that you prayerfully consider making even a small donation and becoming a part of my journey to Carmel. Any and every donation is a very welcome contribution to the whole! I have complete faith that our Lord will multiply even every small gift to supply the necessary funds for my entrance. 

Please leave your name with a donation, and you shall always be remembered very specially in my prayers. 

Please keep me in your prayers as well- that I may continue responding to His grace!

God bless you always,

Maggie Conklin
