On Saturday, April 4, 2015, we celebrated Easter Vigil Mass at the mother church of Queens County in Astoria, New York. Mass was led by our main celebrant and Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F. Con-celebrating were Parochial Vicars, Father Joe Pham and Father Peter Nguyen. Also joining in this celebration was Pastor Emeritus of Saint Margaret Mary, Father Ed Brady. They were assisted by Deacons Manuel Barahona and Ruben Mendez with close to 500 parishioners in attendance. We had three candidates for full initiation (Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation); two candidates received their first Holy Communion and Confirmation, and three candidates received their first Holy Communion. Here are a few pictures. (click for entire album) Pictures courtesy of Nina Carullo.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel traveled to THE BASILICA OF THE NATIONAL SHRINE OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, October 25, 2014. A group of our friends from our neighbor parish, St. Francis of Assisi joined us as we make this bi-annual spiritual journey in tribute to our Blessed Mother. We prayed for the needs of our diocese and our parish family but this year, we prayed especially for those Christians being persecuted in the Middle East. We were accompanied by OLMC Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F., and Parochial Vicars, Father Joe Pham and Father Peter Nguyen. Here is the group picture as we gathered around Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio. Pictures courtesy of Nina Carullo.
