I went to st Marys of Mt Carmel , and was n 8th grade in 1972. What a great neighborhood. My brother and I had a newspaper route from 67 th. and Marshfield to 69th. and Paulina ave. We were also alter The church had the bell on the south end of the church, near the rectory. We would have to pull a red chain to ring it.We moved there from st sibinas in 1967. Going from a big school to a 12 class room school. Until ,about 6th grade,we did not have gym class. they only offered a dance class with a lady they called Mrs Rita.The nuns would tke us outside to play 16 in. softball. Father Joe woul wander over and take a few pitches,One Mo,One Mo,The sister would have to make him give the bat back to the kid. Those few years had a big impact on my hole familyWe have great memories,and once in awhile will come across someone from St Mays.My youngest sister an I took our mother out to Melrose Park Our Lady of Mt.Carmel Feast, 2013, It was like old times again, The prosesion was beautiful,I would like to take my whole family there nxt year, like our parents did.
