PDN: CARMELITES WILL BE MISSED

OUR VIEW: Carmelite nuns contributed to island community; they will be missed

After 50 years, the Carmelite nuns have left Guam because of what Mother Superior Dawn Marie described as a “toxic environment” on the island.

    Let us pray that Mother Dawn Marie returns to Guam. Her mission is not yet finished. I believe the nuns laid to rest in the former property need to be removed to the Catholic cemetry. Only then can the nuns rest. Praying the people of Guam will assist with this.

    1. They are already planning to do that. Going to Pigo.

  2. Quite terse of the Archdiocese to just apologize rather than implore them to return. That apology letter might as well be summed up as, "Thanks for the money! Bye now! Oh and Good Luck!"

    Does anyone realize the gravity of the situation, that Guam no longer has a religious contemplative order??
