“Eat and drink on your long journey.”


This was the invitation to Sheila Mae R. Alcantara as she entered the Novitiate at Carmelitas Misioneras Teresianas (CMT) last July 16, 2022 in the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel which was held at Queen of Carmel Community, Lucena City.

Rev. Fr. Edwin Panergo, presider of the morning praise, reminded everyone of the importance of the Holy Eucharist in Religious Life. He pertained to eating and drinking Spiritually with the Body and Blood of Christ. He also encourages everyone in this journey to be nourished by the Word of God, to look at the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary who first took the courage to tell her Fiat to the Lord. He also mentioned that, Mary is our way to Jesus.

Sheila was formally welcomed by Sr. Marta Faron, CMT, Provincial Councilor together with the other Sisters of Asia, and was given the Constitutions by Sr. Chrezann Angulo, CMT, Provincial Delegate.
