Tuesday, July 16th - Feast Day

8:00 AM - Processional parade through town with the Blessed Mother statue.

The members of Mt. Carmel Society convene at Little Flower Church, on Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights dressed in their "marching attire" and sashes designating their membership at 8:00 AM on July 16th. The Virgin Mary is decorated with beautiful flowers and white ribbons as she’s carefully prepared to travel her journey through town. The travel route is followed each year with designated stops at the homes of previous members. This is done to respect the family, remember loved ones and to honor the tradition. 

 

A band providing Italian American music leads the traditional route through designated areas. To honor the Blessed Mother, many will pin money on the white ribbons she adorns. The funds collected during the parade are later removed and donated to the Little Flower Church. In keeping with tradition, each donor is provided with a Mt. Carmel scapular. 

 

All are welcome to join the procession at any time throughout the route!

 

After the procession, a short mass is held at Little Flower Church followed by a free picnic lunch held at Peppertown Park on Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
