News at Our Lady of Mount Carmel

2023 Diocesan Appeal

This weekend’s Gospel offers the familiar telling of “the man born blind”. In this story, the behavior of the crowd is rather disturbing. On one hand, they are consumed with the perceived sin that they believe placed the blind man in his condition, rather than focusing on how they could help him. And when Jesus provides healing, they are more concerned on his violating their customs, than rejoicing in the restoration of health. How often in our own society do we find people blaming others for their own poverty, and even chastising those who offer help. Jesus himself reminds us that we are called to recognize suffering, and work to alleviate it in our world. Your prayerful response to the Annual Diocesan Appeal: One in Hope, One in Mission, makes possible the compassionate work of Catholic Charities and our ability to extend the mission of the Church throughout our diocese. To date, 70 families of Our Lady of Mount Carmel have pledged $16,716 which is 29.12% toward our goal of $57,400. This is our share of the $4,000,000 goal for our entire diocesan family. If you have not yet made a pledge, please consider doing so between now and Palm Sunday. For more information about the work of the appeal or to make a gift online, please Clicking Here. Thank you and God bless you. Together, we pray, “That all may be one!”
