I would like to thank the entire Worcester City Council and the Mayor for their recent support of the efforts of the Mount Carmel Preservation Society to fix their church and save their parish.
For many, Our Lady of Mount Carmel/St. Ann Church represents much more than a church.
It is the heart and soul of the Italian American community here in the city.
The movement to fix the church and save the parish is not about angry parishioners viciously attacking a Monsignor or a Bishop, but rather, represents the passion of a large group of individuals and families who simply want to preserve a legacy that was left by their ancestors.
