Carmelite Monastery Chapel in Lincoln, Nebraska

Last Tuesday, I had the privilege to make a return visit to the Carmelite Monastery of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Valparaiso, Nebraska.  This Carmel, like our Carmel in Alexandria, South Dakota, also traces its foundation to Mexico and its journey to the United States following the persecutions.  Once in Las Vegas, the bishop of Lincoln invited them to his diocese, and the rest is history.  Construction on the monastery began in 2000, and they are at capacity (they have already branched off in a new foundation in Elysburg, PA).  Part of their growth is attributed to the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form and
the Divine Office in the ancient Carmelite Rite.
