Mount Carmel Feast celebrated with solemnity
Feast of our Lady of Mt. Carmel is a important yearly happening at Carmel Hill, Mangalore. It recalls the rich faith the Carmelite Bishops and missionaries in the Diocese of Mangalore 150 years ago left behind. It is still vibrant and prophetic. The sober Marian piety they handed over through various hymns and devotions to the scapular and rosary are still very much nurturing the faith of the people. The church celebrates Mary's feast on 16th of July as the day of our lady of Mt. Carmel; but by popular demand it is being celebrated at Carmel Hill on a Sunday previous to the feast., which falls this year on the 13th when everyone who comes is taking away a scapular for personal use.

 About St. Joseph Monastery :    

The Carmelites in Karnataka: The Teresian Carmelites had established themselves in Goa and in Kerala in the seventeenth century. And since the region formerly known as the Carnatic, lies between Goa in the north and Kerala in the South, the Carmelites had inevitably to pass through Karnataka when proceeding by land from Goa to Kerala. And it is not surprising to find them residing at least on a temporary basis, in places like Bijapur, which form part of today's Karnataka. In his ‘Viaggio alle Indie Orientali’ Fr. Vincent Mary of St Catherine, has left us interesting descriptions of the beliefs, customs, feasts of the Canara of his time, and even of the scenic beauties and the cultivation and other aspects of life. But he found the Christians greatly neglected. And, on his reporting the need of the Canara Christians to the Holy See, Mangalore secured its first Vicar Apostolic in 1677. 8 read more
