Dear Editor: When I moved to Astoria, my parish was St. Margaret Mary. The memories are my treasure of the many activities that we had – the social events were phenomenal but above all, our spiritual guidance was superb.
I remember our priests and how they not only guided the adults, but also the children were predominantly on their daily routines. We had the good fortune of Father Sean Ogle as a parish priest and now as the guiding light of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
My youngest daughter was married at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, graduated from Mount Carmel – Sister Louise was her principal.
I treasure my memories not only of St. Margaret Mary, known as the hut, but of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel now the mainstay of a very large and varied community.
