So sorry to advise you that our dear Sister in Carmel, Mary McGarvey, has passed. Her Son, Sean advised that Mary passed yesterday afternoon.  He will keep us posted on funeral details. I will share the obituary as soon as it is available.


Mary has been part of Carmel since our beginnings and has been a shining light to many and will be greatly missed. She now will be joined with our other Carmelite brothers and sisters in the heavenly court.


Rest In Peace Mary…
