Our annual gala benefit dinner and auction, Viva! Santa Teresita was held on October 20, 2012.  Guests joined the Carmelite Sisters for Holy Mass at St. Joseph Chapel on the campus of Santa Teresita, presided by Abbott Damion Toilolo, O.S.B.

Following Holy Mass, guests mingled in Madonna Hall for refreshments and the silent auction. Dinner was served in the area that formerly held Santa Teresita Hospital. Sister Marie Estelle and Sister Marie Suzanne, who both currently serve at Santa Teresita Manor, emceed the event and Sister Carmen Therese joined us all the way from Miami, Florida, to host the live auction portion of the evening.

Guests enjoyed the company of the Sisters as they gathered to honor Monsignor Clement Connolly, long time supporter and friend of the Carmelite Sisters and Santa Teresita.
