8:00 am - Processional parade through town with the Saint (Blessed Mother)
At 8am on July 16, the members of the Mt. Carmel Society convene at Little Flower Church, on Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights dressed in their "marching attire" and sashes designating their membership. The Virgin Mary is decorated with beautiful flowers and white ribbons as she’s carefully prepared to travel her journey through town. A band providing italian/american music leads the traditional route through designated areas. Along the way, the band and members stop in the streets to allow those to pay tribute. 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. 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. All are welcome to join in the procession and are asked to meet at Little Flower Church on July 16 at 8am est. After the procession, a mass is held at Little Flower Church. After church, for those who participated in the parade, a free picnic lunch for all is held at Peppertown Park on Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
