On September 19 the
Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus will celebrate 90 years of service to the Archdiocese of St. Louis. It was on September 19, 1919 that Blessed Maria Teresa of St. Joseph (the Order's foundress) met with Cardinal Glennon and was accepted into the Archdiocese.

They will celebrate this occasion with a Solemn High Votive Mass of St. Joseph in the Extraordinary Form in their chapel at 1:00 on September 19, 2009.

Sources confirm that His Grace, the Most Reverend Raymond Leo Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, will pontificate.

[Archbishop Burke was formerly Bishop of La Crosse and Archbishop of St. Louis. Somehow, I'm figuring that these St. Louis Carmelites are not on the Vatican's Visitation List.]
