News at Our Lady of Mount Carmel

2019 Bishop's Appeal

2020 Annual Bishop's Appeal
This weekend, our parish will join with other parishes in responding to the needs of Catholic Charities and other diocesan ministries through the Annual Bishop’s Appeal. You are invited to respond to letters received in the mail from Bishop Murry to previous donors, or to use the pledge envelopes available in the bulletin this weekend. During the coming Lenten season, please prayerfully consider making a sacrificial commitment to the 2020 Bishop’s Appeal. $4,000,000 is needed by the diocese to meet the needs of serving the poor in our community. Thank you in advance for your support of the Annual Bishop’s Appeal.

Our Lady Of Mount Carmel Family Center



From the moment you step inside, the first thing you will notice is an entirely barrier free building. Stretching over 21,000 square feet "up the alley", the Mount Carmel Parish Family Center offers opportunities for prayer, education service and social gatherings. Beginning with the entrance way, there is a coat room to the right, as well as the daily Mass chapel to the left. Sponsored by our parish's Blessed Mother Society, this chapel will provide a sacred space for daily Mass, as well as other prayer experiences for our religious education students and parishioners alike. Directly ahead is the 400+ seat social hall, complete with two bar areas and an accessible staging area. Beyond the hall is a state of the art catering kitchen - designed to accommodate our festival preparation, parish dinners, and a variety of other events. Complete with ample restroom facilities and storage space, the complex then moves into a series of classrooms, which, with moveable walls, can be converted into larger meeting spaces. At the opposite end of the building is the religious education entrance, including offices, a space dedicated to youth and young adults, as well as additional storage space. Truly a structure which will allow us the opportunity to worship, educate, serve and celebrate as a parish family for generations to come. Let us work together to continue the incredible legacy of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish!

Thank you to everyone who has been faithful to their pledges toward our Parish Family Center. Thanks to your dedicated commitment, along with the success of our summer festivals, we are well on track to a ground-breaking this coming July, with the work to commence after the summer festival. What seemed like such a far off prospect is rapidly becoming a reality. Again, thank you to those who have made a pledge and are making payments. If anyone is interested in joining in this great addition to our parish, please contact the parish office at 330-652-5825. May God continue to bless our parish family.

Feast Day Ceremony / Festival

Thank you to everyone who joined in making last weekend an absolutely incredible celebration of our parish family. From the Feast Day Mass and Procession, to the Groundbreaking of our new Parish Family Center, to the champagne toast and the amazing celebratory dinner – it was truly a day to remember. Again, I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make the weekend a great success, and also the many more who have been giving so much of their time and talent to make our summer festival such an outstanding event. It bears repeating – I am so genuinely proud to be your pastor. Thank you for joining in the journey that brings the love of Christ into our hearts, our homes, and our community. It is a privilege and an honor to serve God and our neighbor with you as the family of Our Lady of Mount Carmel – Always Breaking Ground! Enjoy the remaining hours of the festival and may God continue to bless always and in all ways. With much love, Father Lavelle
