What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops!

— Matthew 10:27

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Scholarships

The scholarship program for Our Lady of Mount Carmel has been revised this year.

Grace Upon Grace — History of the Diocese of Monterey Books are Still Available!

The hardcover books describing the history of the Diocese and all its parishes (including OLMC) are still available. The cost is $30, which is the same as our cost, and they can be purchased in the parish office.

For a sample, please see the copy in the back of the church.

Why Catholic?

Beginning this Fall we will be participating as a parish in the Why Catholic? process. The small Christian community process will offer us a special opportunity to grow in the joy of our faith, understand the power of God’s Word in our lives, link our faith with our everyday life, and experience the gift of fellowship in community as Catholics.

Why Catholic? is a unique opportunity for our parish to make our faith not only more meaningful, but truly alive! The once a week sessions for six weeks in the Fall will be a very powerful means of growth for each of us individually, as well as for the parish as a community. Please plan ahead to join us in this special spiritual journey guided by the Holy Spirit. More on our Why Catholic? process will soon be available.

Youth Corner

Catholics are encouraged to pray frequently — not only when they are in church but at other times as well: at home, out walking, or in a favorite quiet place.

Prayer has been called “wasting time with God.” It’s a bit like friendship. If you asked friends why they spend time together, they’d probably say, “We just like being together.”

It’s the same with prayer. At its heart, prayer is a relationship — our relationship with God. Saint Teresa of Avila said, “Prayer in my opinion is nothing else than an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with God who loves us.”

So prayer isn’t measured by results. It’s worth- while for it’s own sake.
