Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is bringing back its annual feast and carnival this month. The annual event hosted by the Pine Street church — which merged with Immaculate Conception church on North Fullerton Avenue in 2016 to form one parish, St. Teresa of Calcutta — will be held from Thursday, July 19, through Sunday, July 22.

The event was put on hiatus for two years due to the uncertainty over whether the church would stay open.
