The Carmelite Sisters of Saint Patrick's Home joined the Carmelite Friars in their belated celebration of  the 100th anniversary of the Carmelite Saint , St. Simon Stock.  The celebration was held at Saint Simon Stock- Saint Joseph Parish in the Bronx. Given the difficulties brought  by the pandemic, the  celebration was delayed from its actual day on May 16, 2020 to March 2021. It was a lovely celebration and it was great hearing again our early history with our Foundress Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, her Six Companions, and the Carmelite Father Flanagan who assisted the young Community's affiliation to the Carmelite Order.

Present at the altar were: Most Rev. Peter Byrne, D.D (Principal Celebrant), Br. Daniel Shuller, O.Carm. (Master of Ceremonies), Main Concelebrants Very Rev. Mario Esposito, O.Car. (Prior Provincial), Very Rev. Michael Kissane, O.Carm. (Pastor), Rev. Paul Richmond, O.Carm. (Parochial Vicar), Rev. Roberto Perez, O.Carm. (Prior) and Rev. Nelson Belizario (Former Pastor).  The relic of Saint Simon Stock was also presented.
