Ciao Padre Paolo,

It was a pleasure meeting you and your mom and as I told you this is my personal blog which I am still working on and the others are: Saint Francis and Saint Francis Walk also look at Saint Mary of the Assumption and see if you would like something along these lines or whatever you think and I will be happy to do it.  We can talk when you get a chance I will fly out tomorrow and be back in the evening and available from then on.  Again it was great meeting you and all your family.  Pace e Bene ALEX

Carmelite Brothers

Posted by Alex Colao on August 28, 2010

My visit  to the Carmelite house in Harrison NJ with Brother Robert. The Cathedral in Newark and  the Shrine of the Lady of Mount Carmel in Middletown. The profession of final vows for my good friend Mark and Fung. I took no photos of the ceremony itself as I preferred to record it in my head. Thank you all for the hospitality and hope to see you soon here in Florida, it was a great experience!! SEE PHOTOS
