Our-Lady of Mount Carmel Chapel fiesta

Our two chapels at Zone 2, Barangay Carmen will celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on July 16. The officers of these 2 chapels had a meeting with Fr. Joel and agreed that their fiesta celebration will no longer be Birhen Sa Kota but Our Lady of Mount Carmel (OLMC). Both chapels are under the patronage of Our Lady  under this title. Though their patron is Our Lady of Mount Carmel and is located at Carmen, they are not part of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish but part of Sacred Heart Parish, our Parish.

Fiesta Preparations

To prepare for the fiesta, the community started their novena on July 7. This will last until July 15. During the novena days, the two communities also had their community recollection. This was given by Br. Gary Manansala, SSS. The OLMC – Binonoan Community had theirs on July 9 and the OLMC – Oro Chain Community on July 13. Br. Gary gave a one hour talk in the evening of those days at the 2 chapels about Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

A film showing was also done in the two chapels. These films were about values on family relationships and on friendship. On July 14, the two communities will have joint children’s which at OLMC – Oro Chain Village Chapel. In the morning of the 15th of July, the two communities will have a joint procession of Our Lady around the area of Zone 2, Carmen.

Two Fiesta Mass at the 2 Chapels

Both communities will have their separate fiesta Mass at 9:30 in the morning. After which, the priests will go around to bless their houses.
