Guigno – 2017

Dear Mount Carmel Family and Friends,


Believe it or not with all of the RAIN–SUMMER is around the corner, and soon we will be enjoying vacations and the many festivities of the season, especially our annual PARISH BAZAAR.   

The annual Saint Peregrine Mass honoring his feast day, was celebrated on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 10:00am. Servite Father Chris Krymski from the National Shrine of Saint Peregrine housed in Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica in Chicago, was the main celebrant at Mass. With cancer so pronounced in our day, Saint Peregrine is a growing Saint for intercession. May 13th was also the 100th anniversary of Mary appearing in Fatima, Portugal. On May 13th the Ambassadors of Mary gathered at 9:30am for the rosary attending the 10:00am Mass.   

Today is Pentecost. 50 days after Easter, celebrating the beginning of the Church. May the Holy Spirit deepen within us our Christian faith and expressed in our LOVE of who we are to those we encounter.

The feast of OLMC falls on Sunday this year and the Mass will be that of the feast. Our Mount Carmel Annual Procession during the Bazaar on Sunday, the 16th of July, has been well attended the past few years. ALL church groups and Italian Organizations are encouraged to participate in the procession. It’s a commitment as we honor our Italian-American  Heritage. This year we hope more are able to participate. To enable this, the Sunday 9:00am and 11:00am Masses will be moved to 2:00pm on Sunday July 16th. The procession will begin at 3:00pm ending at 4:00pm. The bazaar will be open at 4:00pm closing at 9:00pm. This year, raffle winners will be announced at 8:30pm. .

Blessing for an enjoyable, safe, and peace-filled summer,

Padre Ugo
