Photos from the recent events

Luke Larkin, a parishioner at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Seekonk, recently completed a Police Appreciation Community Service Project in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this fall. The service project for local law enforcement received great support from the Seekonk community. Backpacks filled with various items for every member of the department were delivered to the Swansea Police Department on August 6. From left: Patrolman Andrew Pelletier, Larkin, Sgt. Mark Foley, and Patrolman Keith Lake. It was an effort to show people are grateful to all the officers who watch over and protect their community. A special thank you went out to major donors: The Ice Cream Barn, Chick-fil-A and the CornerStone Bakery.
