Belmont church celebrates 100 years with new look

Posted: Updated:
BELMONT -

Exactly 100 years after the first mass ever held at Our Lady Mount Carmel Church, parishioners gathered to celebrate the occasion.

Despite Saturday being a day earlier than typical Catholic worship, the church was packed to the second floor for the festivities ten decades in the making.

The church has been renovated thanks to millions of dollars in donations.

 Floors were ripped apart and walls re-painted just in time for the centennial celebration.
