From Baguio To Loughrea

By Sister Mary Concepcion OCD

White Christmas for Sr Rose Alice and Sr Concepcion

In His time, God fulfilled my desire to go on mission, although not to Africa. But His will be done.

When I was still newly professed in Baguio Carmel, our first Father Provincial, an Irish Carmelite, told the Association of Monasteries of Discalced Carmelites in the Philippines that a bishop in Ghana was asking for a Filipino Carmelite foundation of nuns. When this materialized after almost fifteen years I wasn’t permitted to go since we were only a few in our community.
