Mount Carmel / Blessed Sacrament Parish hosted its annual Breakfast with Santa Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012. The youngsters first were treated to a story read to them in the Salerno Room, then were served breakfast along with their parents, grandparents and others by the youth of the parish. After their bellies were full, it was time for Santa. Though he had a bit of a cold, Santa took time and greeted each child and listened to what they wanted for Christmas. Some even brought long lists.
The St. Mary of Mount Carmel / Blessed Sacrament Italian Festival took place July 13 through 15 on the parish grounds. Here are some images from the feast. Some of the photos were shot by Observer-Dispatch photo editor Mark DiOrio. These are copyrighted and can not be downloaded.
