PRESS CONFERENCE

Monday, April 24 – 6:30 p.m.

LOCATION: OUR LADY OF MT. CARMEL CHURCH
24 Mulberry St., Worcester

RAIN OR SHINE

OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL CHURCH, WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, WAS UNJUSTLY CLOSED BY THE CHURCH LEADERSHIP ON MAY 1ST, 2016

The church was neglected by the Diocese of Worcester, which had a fiduciary responsibility to assure its maintenance, knowing that viable solutions to repair and sustain it are available and at hand.

It is scheduled for demolition in May 2017.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is a community anchor, an iconic, irreplaceable historically significant cultural center, as well as a centerpiece for Worcesterโ€™s large Italian American population.

It was also awarded the distinction as one of the top seven historic resources in Massachusetts.

The Mount Carmel Preservation Society is working diligently to save Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. It is unjust to see this historical treasure demolished unnecessarily.

Your support in any way, be it in-kind service or donation would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!
