A Little Fellow Follows Me
A careful man I ought to be, A little fellow follows me.
I dare not go astray, For fear he’ll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape his eyes, Whatever he see me do, he tries.
Like me, he says, he’s going to be, The little chap who follows me.
He thinks that I am good and fine, Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see, That little fellow who follows me.
I must remember as I go, Thru summers’ sun and winters’ snow.
I am building for the years to be, In the little chap who follows me.
My Dear Friends
Words alone, can never express my sincere thanks for everyone in-volved in making our 89th Annual Festival a great success. For this was one of our best festivals ever! The weather was good, with a few challenges, but there were no major problems.
The procession was beautiful as we all re-ceived many blessings! Seeing everyone greet us we passed your homes was very humbling. Your support and kindness is greatly appreciated.
Your love for Our Lady of Mount Carmel tru-ly shows. It is through people like you that we are able to continue to be a vibrant and active parish for the people of God, in our community and around the world.
We thank our chairpersons, Frank D’Onofrio and Holly Tube, each one of you who worked and sacrificed of your time for God and your Parish. May our Lord bless you for all you do.
May your love for Our Lady of Mount Car-mel continue to grow as we all strive for holiness. May our Lord bless you, and may His Holy Mother, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, be with you each day, as you face life’s challenges.
Your Shepard, Father Richard
