ADULT CONFIRMATION ON FEAST OF PENTECOST
We celebrated the Vigil of the Feast of Pentecost on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Pentecost is the gift of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and poured out upon the entire church. It’s the one time in addition to the Easter Vigil when Pastors are given the faculty to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation and OLMC was proud to have 7 candidates who had been studying and preparing for this day to receive this third sacrament of initiation. Our Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle had the privilege to anoint these 7 people, shown here. May The Holy Spirit not only purify and illuminate these candidates but the entire parish. May we all grow in the holiness of the Lord. For all pictures, please go to Photo Gallery. Video posted on You Tube.
ROSARY SOCIETY COMMUNION BREAKFAST
The Rosary Society of Our Lady of Mount Carmel has a rich history that goes back into the late 1890’s. This group is made up of women ranging in ages from mid-40s through late 90s representing a wide variety of ethnicities. The Society is a spiritual organization whose primary focus is prayer and to cultivate and promote devotion to our Lord and His Mother while leading its members to a deepening of their Catholic faith by providing spiritual help and support for one another. It also has social activities such as the Communion breakfast on May 5, 2013 . The Society conducts a monthly collection of dry and canned food as well as cake sales to help supplement the food pantry at St. Margaret Mary to assist those less fortunate in our parish and the community.
At this year’s annual breakfast, the group recognized its most senior member, Mrs. Catherine Fecci for her many years of service to the parish and Rosary Society.
The group was also blessed this year to have the charismatic and inspirational Sister Ave Clark, OP as guest speaker. Here are some pictures from the event. The video has been posted to YouTube
