To add "hands and feet" to their ministry of prayer and sacrifice, the Carmelite Sisters invited the Catholic Charities of Central and Northern Missouri to relocate administrative offices to their monastery.
The staff of three moved from the Diocese of Jefferson City chancery to 2201 W. Main St. in June.
At 5:30 p.m. today, a blessing and dedication ceremony will be held in the Carmelite sanctuary, so the cloistered sisters may participate. An open house will follow in the Charities' offices to the west, closest to the Cathedral of St. Joseph parking lot.
About one year ago, the diocese created the Charities organization, incorporating several of its existing ministries.
