Ladies of Mt. Carmel Auxiliary
The Ladies of Mt. Carmel in Wyandotte, Michigan, an Auxiliary of the Orchard Lake Schools, hosts two fundraisers each year for the
SS. Cyril & Methodius seminarians. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel has a large Polish population. On Tuesday, November 17, 2015, they held one of these fundraisers for SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary to assist with seminarian education.
Attendees played bingo after Mass, and presented the seminarians with the $2,000 they raised. In return, the seminarians sang for the ladies. This fundraiser was a wonderful opportunity for all attendees to get to know some of the seminarians. Father Ptak also attended and joined his sister, Laura, who will serve as the new President of the Orchard Lake Ladies Auxiliary at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
