  • Get the Spiritual Connection

    The Adult Formation Committee is starting weekly Scripture sessions again this fall. The purpose of these meetings is to enhance our understanding of the weekly Mass readings. This is meant to be a spiritual learning experience. The participants are not experts in theology, they are regular parishioners who are trying to gain a fuller understanding of the Sunday readings and thereby feel more spiritually connected in Mass.

    Please join us Wednesday mornings from 10:00 – 11:00 am. There is no pressure to speak, if you would just like to sit and listen that will be fine. 

  • Please Join us


    It is our sad duty to inform you that Fr. James Matthias DesLauriers, O.Carm., died on September 9th, 2015 in Melbourne, Australia surrounded by his loving family. He was 80 years old. Father Matthias served as the Provincial of the New York Province of Carmelites and was well known in the Middletown area for his graciousness, kindness and dedication. There will be a Memorial Mass for him at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Middletown) to celebrate his life on Saturday, October 10 at 11:00am. The mass will be followed by a luncheon in Pilgrim Hall. You are invited to attend.
