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.

Manna Ministry Needs Your Help

Please consider joining the Manna Ministry food delivery to Cachagua and Rippling River residents in need. It’s a small time commitment of one hour on a Saturday morning every six weeks. Team 3 in particular is in critical need at this time. Their next delivery will be on June 3. Please contact Jeff Hawkins (622-0424) or the Parish Office if you are able to serve.

Fence Replacement

As many of you are aware, the perimeter fence of the church has been in very poor condition since the winter storms. Replacing the fence has been challenging not only because of coordination with adjoining property owners, but also because of the lack of available materials. However, we are happy to report that the project is scheduled to begin on June 5 and will last two weeks. Thank you for your patience and support.

Lector Training Workshop

Our Lectors, as well as other parishioners who are interested in serving in the Ministry of the Word, are invited to attend a Lector Training Workshop presented by Louis Lebherz on Tuesday, May 30, at 7 pm, in the Church.

Our Liturgical Ministries Are In Need

We continue to be in need of Lectors, Ministers of the Eucharist, Ministers of Hospitality (Ushers), Choir Members, Altar Servers/ Acolytes (children, youth, or young adults) to serve in our Saturday evening and Sunday Masses. Please let Fr. Dennis know as soon as possible if you are available. Thank you!

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Scholarships

The scholarship program for Our Lady of Mount Carmel has been revised this year. We are offering one or more $1000 scholarships to qualified and active parishioner students who will be attending an accredited institute of higher education (university, junior college, vocational/trade school) full-time this fall. For complete requirements and instructions, please click on the “Scholarships” tab at the top of this page.

The deadline for applications is July 1.

Prayer of the Rosary — Month of Mary

The Rosary is prayed on Sunday mornings before the 9:00 am Mass at 8:30 am, concluding by 8:50 am to prepare for our celebration of the Eucharist.

Second Collection

On the weekend of June 4, we will take a second collection for The Catholic Communications Campaign and the Catholic University of America.

Youth Corner

Jesus tells us today: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” Jesus loves us so much that He promises to lives in us. He strengthens us to live in His love and tells us that He will ALWAYS be with us. We don’t do anything by ourselves. Jesus will always dwell within us. He will never abandon or forget us. His love is so great. We show our love for Him by trusting and believing in His presence and by loving and caring for others. It’s that easy!and why we do what we do. GO!
