18th Carmelite Family Day

On July 18, the entire Carmelite Family congregated at the gymnasium of the United Laboratories, Inc. at Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong to celebrate the 18th Carmelite Family Day. The theme of the gathering was "Carm-el Family Philippines @ 18: A Celebration of Unity." Rev. Fr. Paul Medina, OCarm was invited as homilist since he was the one who started the gathering of the Carmelite Family 18 years ago. The event started with the enthronement of the image of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, followed by the celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided by Rev. Fr.Narciso Reyes, OCD, then some presentations by the member of the Carmelite Family. After the presentations, lunch was served through potluck to the members present.
