Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel: 2015

Our Lady of Mount Carmel

This year the reflections for our Novena to Our Lady of Mount Carmel will focus on the various titles of Mary. In the Litany of Loreto, Mary is addressed in various ways (Seat of Wisdom, Queen of Angels, Morning Star, etc.). Each night during the novena we will reflect on one or more of these titles as we honor her and seek her guidance along our Carmelite journey.

Novena Dates: July 7–15
Time: 7:00-8:30pm

We will celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Thursday, July 16TH with Mass at 8:15am at Holy Spirit. After the Mass, there will be a short teaching on the Brown Scapular, and individual scapulars will be distributed to all who wish to be enrolled in the Brown Scapular of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel.


Remember that during the church renovation project at Holy Spirit, Mass is celebrated in the Parish Center (gym — See Campus Map).
