Parishioners from St. Therese Parish, Cresskill, New Jersey and their pastor, Fr. Sam Citero OCarm, held a farewell celebration for Barry Dineen who will join the Carmelite pre-novitiate formation program on August 6th, along with Filiberto Oregel, Nate Michalak, Ryan Resurrection and Benito Dominguez.
Joining the celebration were the Novices and their Novice Director, Br. Daryl Moresco OCarm from Bransdma Priory in Middletown, New York. Barry has been a life-long parishioner of St Therese Parish and a member of the Youth Ministry Team. Please pray for Barry and all our young men in the pre-novitiate in Chicago. We’re very grateful to Fr. Sam Citero and the Parish Team seen here with Barry for their support and encouragement as Barry discerned his calling to religious life with the Carmelites.
