JULY 7, 2024

We invite all families who have not yet made a contribution to our Annual Catholic Appeal to consider joining our collective effort, as a way to demonstrate our faith through tangible actions. For the most up-to-date information on the appeal’s progress, please consult our parish bulletin. Commitment envelopes are still accessible at the entrances of the church for your convenience.

Next Saturday, July 13, please join us in celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Patroness of our parish, and commemorating the 183rd Anniversary of our parish’s founding. The festivities will begin with an Outdoor Procession at 4 PM, followed by a Pontifical Mass led by His Eminence, Christophe Cardinal Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, who will bestow the Pope’s blessing upon all participants.

After the Mass, everyone is invited to an exciting outdoor party featuring a delightful array of international cuisine, music, and performances, including fun games and treats for teens and children! We encourage everyone to come dressed in their native attire to showcase the cultural richness of our community.

A heartfelt thank you to all the groups and ministries of our parish for their assistance in making this celebration a truly memorable experience for all.

In preparation for this significant day, we invite everyone to join us for a special Triduum of Prayers in honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The Triduum will consist of three consecutive evenings of Praise and Adoration led by a priest or deacon, beginning this Wednesday, July 10, and concluding this Friday, July 12, all at 7:30 PM in the church. We especially encourage the families and friends of those who are consecrated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel to attend.
