Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio added a new element to the Easter celebration of our Diocesan family: The Distinguished Parishioner Awards! Every two or three years, the Bishop presents two parishioners from every parish in the Diocese a special award for their outstanding service.  Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle consulted with his staff and we are so proud to announce that the award winners from Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Astoria are BETTY COFFRINI and MARTHA MOSLER! The Queens County ceremony took place at St. Nicholas Church in Jamaica which on April 20, 2012. We warmly congratulate the ladies! (click for more pictures)
