Mount Carmel Astoria
LAY MINISTERS AND VOLUNTEERS ANNUAL FALL REUNION
On Thursday, November 21, 2013, we had our sixth annual fall gathering of liturgical ministers, committee members and volunteers from Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Margaret Mary. Sixty-five people attended where the topic this year was “A Look at the Mass.” We were led in bi-lingual evening prayer by Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F., our transitional Deacon Christopher R. Heanue, assigned to OLMC for the next two years and permanent Deacon Ruben Mendez.
The English speaking group listened to a talk by Deacon Chris. For the Spanish Group, the speaker was Father Felix Sanchez, Parochial Vicar at St. Joseph’s Parish here in Astoria. Father Felix has served as a priest in Spain and Brazil before coming to the Brooklyn Diocese where he loves teaching and working in the parish.
Afterwards the groups reunited as one for coffee and a variety of sweet treats courtesy of Maria Barretta. Here are a few pictures. Pictures are courtesy of Pastor Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F. and Neida C. Martinez. For all pictures, please go to Photo Gallery. Video posted on You Tube.
VIETNAMESE APOSTOLATE CELEBRATION
BISHOP NICHOLAS DIMARZIO VISIT
We are honored to announce that on Saturday, December 7 at the 5 PM Mass, Bishop of
Brooklyn, Nicholas DiMarzio will visit our church to bless the new stained glass windows in our renovated ”West Porch” vestibule. One window features the crest of Pope Francis and the other features the Bishop’s own Episcopal crest. We believe these are the first stained glass depictions of either of these insignia in any parish in our diocese. At this time, we will also be able to congratulate our Bishop on his tenth anniversary in the Brooklyn Diocese and offer gifts including our gift of prayers for his continued success. We ask all parishioners to join us for this multi-lingual Mass.
