Mount Carmel Feast @ Ryshivana
The Feast of our Lady of Mount Carmel was
solemnized at Ryshivana Ranipura on July 16,
2022 at 6.00 pm, for the first time in its
16-year history. Around 225 were present
including priests, religious and laity. Fr.
Archibald Gonsalves OCD the Superior and
Director presided over the Mass at which Fr.
Wilfred Rodrigues OCD preached the homily
explaining the origin of the Carmelite Order and
the devotion to our Lady of Mount Carmel as well
as the growth and historical development of the
same and the Scapular Devotion.
The OCDS community took an active part in the
arrangements as well as in the Liturgy. While
refreshments were served to all, around 150
invitees joined us for the dinner. Everyone had
a word of appreciation for the wonderful
organization, though for the first time.
