Dear brothers and sisters of the Carmelite family:

          The feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is approaching and, like every year, I want to send you an affectionate greeting with my most sincere congratulations.  I hope that the feast and all the celebrations of these days (novenas, processions, religious and cultural events, etc.) will be an occasion to honor Mary under this title so popular and endearing and so dear to all of us Carmelites. 

On Saturday, July 1, 2017 more than 1000 people gathered to dedicate the new Our Lady of La Vang shrine on the Carmelite property in Middletown, NY.   The day began with Eucharistic Adoration in the St Alberts chapel.

On June 12, 2017 five novices made their first profession of vows at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Middletown, NY in the Carmelite Order. They are: Rev. Justin Cinnante, O.Carm., Bro. Joseph Long Bui, O.Carm., Bro. Anthony Thanh Nguyen, O.Carm., Bro. Joseph Tam Nguyen, O.Carm. and Bro. Peter Trong Pham, O.Carm.. Congratulations to them and may God continue to bless them as they grow in the spirit of Carmel.
