Greetings New Parishioners!
Guided by the Holy Spirit and as stewards of God’s abundance, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is a united and dynamic parish, grounded in the truth of Jesus Christ. It is with great joy that we welcome you to our family!
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is a stewardship parish. Each of us is called to follow Jesus and imitate his way of life, as God has generously bestowed his gifts upon us. As stewards, we receive these gifts gratefully, cultivate and share them with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
You will find that our liturgies celebrate the Sacrifice of the Mass with beauty, dignity, and the enthusiastic participation of the people of God, the sacred assembly. We hope you will join us each and every Sunday, and at weekday Masses too, with full mind, heart, and voice for the glory of God!
We offer more than 200 different service ministries, so something is sure to catch your interest. Please get involved soon. It’s a great way to meet people who, like you, have made a commitment to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We also have fun, and you will have a variety of social events to enjoy throughout the year. More information can be found on our parish web site, www.olmc1.org, and in our weekly bulletin.
The only reason we have such a vibrant and active parish is because our members respond generously to God’s call to give of their time, talent, and treasure. Because you have chosen our parish, I know you will do the same.
Please stop after Mass and introduce yourself. I also encourage you to visit by the parish office to meet our excellent lay ministry staff. You can call the office at 846-3475 if you need information or help. We are all here to serve you!
Again, welcome. May God bless your new life here!
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Fr. Richard Doerr, Pastor
