Our sixth annual procession on Corpus Christi Sunday took place on June 22, 2014. Over 250 parishioners joined our Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F. and Deacons Christopher R. Heanue and Ruben Mendez as we celebrated with a simple procession around the church property singing hymns in Spanish and Italian. We concluded the procession with benediction in the lower church. Here are a few pictures courtesy of Nina Carullo. For all pictures, please go to Photo Gallery. Video by Neida C. Martinez has been posted on You Tube.
On Saturday, June 7, 2014, the Feast of Pentecost, our Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, V.F. was privileged to anoint 7 people with the Sacrament of Confirmation, shown in the picture below. Also in the picture - Pastor Emeritus of Saint Margaret Mary, Father Ed Brady and Deacon Christopher R. Heanue. Pentecost is the one time in addition to the Easter Vigil that the pastor is given the faculty to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation. These candidates have been studying and preparing for this day to receive this third sacrament of initiation. May the Holy Spirit purify and illuminate these candidates as well as our entire parish so that we may grow in the holiness of the Lord. Video of the event has been posted on You Tube.
The English speaking group listened to a talk by published author, Dr. John Zmirak. For the Spanish Group, the speaker was Deacon Ramon Lima.
Afterwards the groups reunited as one for coffee and a variety of sweet treats courtesy of Maria Barretta and Nina Carullo. Pictures are courtesy of Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle. Videos posted on You Tube.
