Carmelite Lenten Offering: Enroll Your Loved Ones in 40 Days of Masses

Brother Knights,

Lent begins next Wednesday February 14. In preparation, we share a wonderful annual Lenten offering by the traditional Carmelite Hermits of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Fairfield, PA which you can begin to enroll in today. The deadline to enroll is Tuesday February 13 (day before Lent).
The Hermits will be offering the following during Lent:  

  • 40 Traditional Latin Masses (Carmelite Rite)
  • 40 days of praying the Divine Office (and other daily prayers), and;
  • 40 days of fasting and penance

Enroll those most in need to benefit from 40 Masses and 40 days of prayer and penance offered by the Discalced Hermits of Our Lady of Mount Carmel this Lent. Anyone can be enrolled but especially it is beneficial for those in need of conversion, healing, or strength.

Although the enrollment is free, the Hermits survive entirely on alms from the laity, and as such please consider a donation to help support their apostolate. A few members of Hermits’ community are brother Knights. To learn more and enroll, visit: https://www.edcarm.org/lent and also see this inspiring video



No human tongue can enumerate the favors that trace back to the Sacrifice of the Mass. The sinner is reconciled with God; the just man becomes more upright; sins are wiped away; vices are uprooted; virtue and merit increase; and the devil’s schemes are frustrated.” – Saint Lawrence Justinian
