Found: Dan Short 3-22-18

Thursday, March 22, 2018

We found Dan Short. He was standing in front of St. Joseph's Carmelite Monastery at 22nd Ave NE and NE 147th St.

Here's some history of the Carmelites from their webpage

"The Carmelite Nuns were admitted to the Order in 1452, and in the 16th century St. Teresa of Avila initiated a reform of the Order that began in Spain, spread throughout the world, and led to the establishment of the Teresian Carmel of which we are a part.

"In 1790, four Carmelite Nuns from Flanders in Belgium crossed the Atlantic Ocean to make the first foundation at Port Tobacco, Maryland. Eventually this settlement of nuns moved to Baltimore. St. Joseph’s Monastery in Seattle was founded in 1908 by a little band of four nuns who ventured from the Baltimore Carmel by train at the request of Archbishop Edward O’Dea. St. Joseph’s Monastery is the 7th Carmelite Monastery to be founded in the United States and the first on the West Coast."

Their current five acre site was purchased in 1956 and in 1965 the buildings were complete for the nuns to move in.

Did you know? If you didn't there will be another chance next week.
