NO STOPPING THIS VIGIL: This arrived at recently.

Dear Friends & Supporters & Media,
A lot has been happening this holiday season for the Mount Carmel Church in East Boston.  Most of you know that the Archdiocese has not granted Mt. Carmel a midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, although he did grant it for other suppressed parishes.  Being an Italian Church, the midnight Eve Mass is the most celebrated, meaningful and traditional event for Italians!!  We were overlooked once again. 
On Friday December 24th at 4:00PM  we will hold a brief communion service. Immediately following the service we will hold a candlelight vigil at San Padre Pio site, directly across the street from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish.   We are going to pray for the Archdiocese to "See the Light."
We need your support! Please make an effort to stop by for at least 1/2 hour.  Spread the word.  God Bless you all and happy holidays!
Our Lady of Mount Carmel
128 Gove Street
East Boston, MA 02128
