Feast of All Saints of Carmel
October 21, 2017 (Saturday)
Our former boys attended our annual Boys' Home reunion which started with a Holy Mass at 11:00 AM officiated by Reverend Fr. Leon Martin, SAC. This event was most awaited for by these former residents who came with their wives, children and grandchildren.
"I only get to see them every year". Jerry B. commented excitedly as he awaits this weekend affair. He is our former boy who at present is employed part-time by the Sisters. The delicious meal was prepared by Ronald L. and his wife who have been generously doing it every year. It is a time for them to reminisce the good old days when they spent their childhood under the wings of our Sisters.
