Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Lampeter.
The 50th anniversary of the restoration of the British Province of Carmelites will be marked with celebrations at Lampeter (Llanbedr Pont Stefan) in Ceredigion, Wales, at 11am on Tuesday 16th July 2019.
Wales has long been important in the history of the re-establishment of the Carmelite Order's presence in Britain.
The Catholic Church in Lampeter was opened on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (16th July) 1940, and was the first church dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Wales. The building of the church was overseen by Carmelite friar Fr. Malachy Lynch, O.Carm. The £5,000 costs were raised mostly from Dublin.
Mass will be celebrated by the Prior General of the Carmelite Order, Most Rev. Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm.
All are welcome! Mae croeso i bawb!
