First Pilgrims

Pilgrims from Texas On Friday 11th July our Carmel hosted more than 40 Pilgrims from Fort Worth Diocese in Texas.  The 8:30am Mass was celebrated by our Parish's assistant Priest Father Roger Yarte together with Father Hoa Nguyen from Fort Worth.  Afterwards we met these wonderful young people in our Visitors' Room.
