Sunday 29 October

The annual Thanksgiving and Bazaar was a memorable day in the calendar of the Igbo worshiping community at Our  Lady of Mount Carmel church on St. Laurent Boulevard. Over a hundred parishioners and guests were there to acknowledge all the blessings they they had received in the course of the past year. This year’s donations reached a record $10,000, thanks to the generosity of the community, and the diligent work of the Thanksgiving and Bazaar Committee, chaired by Anthonia Adibe, with Vera Madueke, Chuks Imaghiagbe, Ben Muoka, Bridget Ofili and Fr. Ben Ubani as members, under the unifying leadership of Church Coordinator Ike Nnebe.
