COLORADO SPRINGS. On Oct. 7, members representing three Colorado Lay Carmelite communities observed a day of recollection at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Boulder.  
The day began with the celebration of Mass, at which four members of St. John the Baptist Lay Carmelite Community made their temporary professions (the second of three stages in the six-year formation process of becoming a Lay Carmelite).

The day also featured presentations from two Discalced Carmelite sisters from Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic STEM School in Wheat Ridge. Sister Juanita, O.C.D. discussed the characteristics and ideals of Carmelite spirituality. 

Sister Ines, O.C.D. offered spiritual lessons from the biblical stories of Mary, Zacchaeus, the rich young man, and Esther.  
For more information about becoming a Lay Carmelite, visit laycarmcolorado.org or contact Sue Athey at 719-265-6999 or atheysms@hotmail.com.
