Bishop Paul Etienne
The Diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming

            While the New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. is distinct from and receives no financial support from the Diocese of Cheyenne, we are blessed to be in this Diocese, one of the last great mission lands of Bishop Paul Etiennethis country.  Bishop Paul Etienne was appointed Bishop of Cheyenne by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in October, 2009.  The Diocese of Cheyenne is comprised of the entire State of Wyoming, which is marginally Catholic.  Being served by wonderful and holy priests, the Diocese is blessed with a true missionary zeal.  With the large responsibilities of our priests, the Carmelite Monks are a real source of grace and consolation for the parishes and missions of Wyoming. 

           Bishop Etienne is a tremendous supporter and advocate of the way of life and mission of the Carmelite Monks.  His Excellency and the entire Diocese of Cheyenne have rejoiced at the large number of vocational inquiries the monastery is receiving.  When Bishop Etienne learned of the New Mount Carmel Foundation’s vision and the professional men who sit on the Board, he composed the following letter in overwhelming support of the work of the Foundation.  At his request, we publish this letter for the faithful that the words of our Bishop and shepherd may be heard.

           

Let us pray for Bishop Etienne and his intentions, since he has been so good not only to the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, but also to the New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. 

The New Mount Carmel Foundation and the Carmelite Monks have the full support of the Bishop of Cheyenne, Wyoming:

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation is also greatly indebted to the previous Bishop of Cheyenne, Bishop David L. Ricken. Bishop Ricken was the episcopal founder of the Carmelite monks, and remains a great supporter of the monks in his new position as the Bishop of the Green Bay Diocese in Wisconsin. Bishop Ricken has also written a letter of support for the founding of the New Mount Carmel of America.

           As professional businessmen, the Directors of the New Mount Carmel Foundation are mindful that every one of us wants to leave his mark in this world. In the last one hundred years, similar projects have only been undertaken a handful of times; this is a unique opportunity to impact the lives of thousands upon thousands, perhaps even millions of souls.  The construction of a gothic monastery requires courage and, yes extensive resources too.  The New Mount Carmel Foundation is seeking magnanimous and generous souls to assist in realizing the Lord’s vision here.  When we simply consider the magnificent monasteries of Europe and the patrons who built these glorious edifices that stand still today, we realize that the patrons of a monastery are people of deep faith.  By their generosity the patrons of old not only provided for us by building monasteries to house monks and nuns to pray for the generations to come, but they also built a worthy dwelling place for our Eucharistic Lord.  It is no wonder that the present monks and nuns now living in the ancient monasteries of Europe continue to pray for the repose of the souls of their founding patrons.  The Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel will do likewise! 

           We each must one day breathe forth our last breath and render an account to the Lord.  Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if Jesus told us on that day that we built His house and the house of His servants by helping to fund a New Mount Carmel of America?  When we ponder the generations and generations of vocations that shall be fulfilled within the monastery’s walls and the countless Holy Masses that shall be offered within the Church, what would we not give to see the Foundation’s vision realized? We hope that God may be calling you to this great work for surely the Lord has indescribable graces and blessings in store for those generous souls who help His religious..
