Despite the fact that the church at our monastery was built many years ago, it was never formally consecrated, and for this reason, a general renovation undertaken in the spring of 2015 became an ideal occasion for us to consecrate it. After the renovation was completed, during a Solemn Holy Mass on November 12, 2015, Bishop Donald Hying, the Ordinary of the Diocese of Gary, carried out the consecration of our renovated church.
At the ceremony, apart from the great numbers of the faithful gathered for the occasion, along with guests from Poland and our entire Carmelite community, our Provincial Superior, Fr. Tadeusz Florek, OCD, also took part. The provincial brought from Rome relics of St. John Paul II, which were placed in the new marble altar.
