Last weekend, a good friend of ours underwent the Rite of Admission into the Secular Carmelite Order, making his temporary promises and entering the first stages of his formation. He also received his Scapular.
The Rite of Admission took place at St. Mary's Church in the City of Sacramento. The temperature was slightly less than in Hades, but with a bit less humidity.
There is a beautiful statue of Our Lady here.
After having made his promises, he receives his Scapular.
There were a couple of women who were also making their vows into the Order.
Congratulations, Pedro, on becoming a Secular Carmelite!
