Sr Teresa of Jesus, 33, made her simple profession during a Eucharistic Celebration on November 14 presided over by Carmelite Chaplain Fr Mattheus Luta in the Carmelite monastery. Her mother, Dourine Oloh, was present to witness the occasion.

Upon hearing the call of the Lord and following few years of discernment, Sr Teresa of Jesus entered the Carmelite Monastery on Nov 23, 2019. She received her habit on Nov 14, 2020. After expressing her desire to dedicate herself wholly to God, she began hera three year probation in preparation for her solemn profession. During the ceremony, she made vows of obedience, chastity and poverty before the Mother Prioress.

Sr Teresa of Jesus, born on May 17, 1987, hails from Telipok. She is the fourth of six siblings (three boys and three girls). Her father is Andrew Onduk Ponsoi. The community prays that she may continue to persevere in her religious vocation in the cloistered Carmelite community which has 19 members. --Catholic Sabah
