Lord, you are good and forgiving, most merciful to all who call on you.

— Psalm 86:5

2017 Parish Registration Update

Dear New and Current Parishioners of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel,

I ask that you please take a few brief moments to update our parish registration. We have found that our current date base has many errors and in many circumstances is out of date. This has affected our ability as a parish to serve as effectively as we would like the diverse needs of our parish community.

The 2017 Parish Registration Update, when completed, can be place in the basket in front of the altar, dropped off, or sent to the parish office. The form is also available here in English, and aquí en Español.

Thank you for your faithfulness and loving commitment to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Dennis

Parish Faith Formation — Catechists Needed

We are now planning for our 2017-2018 Faith Formation Classes for children, youth, and adults of our Parish. We are in the need of additional Catechists. Please consider sharing your faith by serving our Lord and OLMC as a Catechist. Training will be offered. Please contact Fr. Dennis in the Parish Office.

As announced in the past, the fence project has been delayed indefinitely. We are requesting bids from other contractors for the project and hope to be able to move forward on the project as soon as possible. When we have more infor- mation we will let you know. Thank you for your patience.

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

Let’s pray today and always to trust in God even during those times when things aren’t the way we would like them to be. For example, those times when we experience weeds growing together with the wheat! God’s wisdom and love are guiding and inviting all of us to conversion.
