You can purchase tickets after all Masses, from ticket sellers, the parish office on the festival grounds.

Contact Leigh D’Agostino at 315-737-5965 with questions. Ticket sellers must return their money and tickets by July 18.

Walk for Mary’s Children

Following the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, July 21, the annual Walk for Mary’s Children will take place, weather permitting, around our parish campus.

Those walking and others can either donate nonperishable food items or make a monetary donation to the Mount Carmel Society. The society will donate the food to a local organization. The last time the society did this, it used the money to purchase more food to add to what was donated.

This is just another way to honor Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
