Carmelite Nuns Announce Cancelation Of Carmelite Fair Due To COVID-19
HOLLADAY, Utah – The Carmelite Nuns announced Wednesday that they have canceled the annual Carmelite Fair.
The fair provides raffles, refreshments and games, while also serving as a fundraiser supporting the Nuns.
“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Carmelite Nuns have made the difficult decision to cancel the fair in order to prioritize the health and safety of the public,” a press release read.
For 68 years, the Carmelite Nuns have been part of the Salt Lake Community. The Nuns rely on the fundraiser as their main means of support for the maintenance of the monastery, medical expenses, house expenses, chaplaincy, and to allow their continued vocation of life in prayer, according to the release.
“As the Chair of the Carmelite Fair Committee, we have created a GoFundMe* fundraiser to help the Nuns recover from the loss of the funds that would have been raised through their annual fair,” Chris Bertram said. “They have dedicated their lives to loving and praying for each of us, and now they need our help to continue their mission.”
