After a two-year hiatus caused by the Covid pandemic, on Sept. 18 the Carmelite Fair returned to the grounds of the Carmel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Salt Lake City.

The annual event brings people from all over Utah to enjoy live entertainment, silent and live auctions, a variety of food and children’s games, all in support of the cloistered nuns who live in the monastery.

In an email message, Mother Therese Bui, OCD said, “The Carmelite nuns would like to express their gratitude to the volunteers and supporters who have made the fair a success this year. All will be lovingly remembered in the sisters’ daily prayers.  May God reward all.”

Among the fundraisers was a raffle. The prize winners follow.
