The link below contains a number of pictures that may be of interest. They are of the Solemn Mass and enclosure of the newly founded Carmelite Monastery of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Elysburg, PA, the daughterhouse of the Carmel in Valparaiso, NE.

The Mass was celebrated by Fr. Rob Howard, FSSP, the chaplain of the Monastery in the presence of His Excellency Bishop Kevin Rhoades of the Harrisburg Diocese. Bishop Rhoades then processed throughout the Monastery with those clergy in attendance, following the nuns who chanted the Asperges, as he blessed the building and grounds before enclosing the new community.
