PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, glorious Queen of Angels, channel of God's tenderest mercy to man, refuge and advocate of sinners, with confidence I prostrate myself before thee, beseeching thee to obtain for me [insert your request here]. In return I solemnly promise to have recourse to thee in all my trials, sufferings, and temptations, and I shall do all in my power to induce others to love and reverence thee and to invoke thee in all their needs. I thank thee for the numberless blessings which I have received from thy mercy and powerful intercession. Continue to be my shield in danger, my guide in life, and my consolation at the hour of death. Amen
Pentecost is the one time in addition to the Easter Vigil that the pastor is given the faculty to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation. On Saturday, May 23, 2015, at the Vigil Mass of Pentecost, our Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F. was privileged to anoint 13 people, shown in the picture below. These candidates have been studying and preparing for this day to receive this third sacrament of initiation. May the Holy Spirit illuminate not only these candidates but also the entire parish so that we may grow in the holiness of the Lord. Video of the event has been posted on You Tube.
