Parishioners celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the church’s 125th anniversary with a special celebration and a pasta dinner on Sunday, July 18.
Father Jim concelebrated the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass with former pastor and native son, the Rev. Joseph Salerno, and former Mount Carmel parishioner and now pastor of Historic Old St. John’s, the Rev. Tom Servatius.
At the Mass, four women older than 90 were honored for their decades of dedication to the parish: Palma DeSarro, 100; Antoinette LaPaglia 100; Rosemarie Chiffy, 94; and Vicki Perritano, 91.
After Mass, 150 people attended a pasta dinner under the tent in the parking lot. Proceeds benefitted the CNY Veterans Outreach Center.
