"Living the Joy of the Gospel", the theme of the Bishop's Annual Appeal, inspires us, as people of faith to share joyfully in the Good News of Christ to those who most need to feel His love. Works of kindness and assistance, sometimes in the smallest way, can bring about a profound change in a person's life. Through the Bishop's Annual Appeal, we have an opportunity to bring about a positive change in the lives of many of God's people.
Through your generosity, you are supporting the various ministries and programs that are vital in spreading His Love.
The weekend of July 11th and 12th is the Commitment Weekend for the Appeal at which time you can make your gift or pledge. You will receive a letter this year along with a BAA envelope and return envelope because of the Covid-19 virus keeping everyone from attending Mass at this time.
We ask that you consider making a pledge after you receive your letter, either by returning your envelope to the parish or you will have information about how to make a pledge on line through the Diocese.
Thank you for past contributions to the Bishop's Annual Appeal, in which you have enabled us to go over our parish goal. May God continue to bless you always. - The Bishop's Annual Appeal Committee
THANK YOU CATHOLIC FOUNDATION!
The Catholic Foundation works with donors throughout the Diocese of Columbus to make a difference in our parishes and various Catholic organizations. Through the donors’ generosity, The Catholic Foundation is able to provide grants each year to make programs and services possible. The parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is pleased to announce that this year we received three grants through The Catholic Foundation for various programs! Our Saint Vincent DePaul chapter received a grant, Providing for the Needy in the Buckeye Lake Region, for $2,000 to help those in need of additional support with rent, utilities, medicines and transportation. Our second grant entitled, Learning About Our Faith through Studying the Bible, provides our mixed Bible Study group with $2,500 for two series to be presented in the Fall and Spring with very little to no cost to the participants. Bringing the Church to the People via Live-Streaming, our third grant in the amount of $5,000, will go towards expanding our existing audio and video equipment. We are truly blessed to have received these grants this year! Thank you again to The Catholic Foundation and their donors for their continued commitment and support!
Food Pantry News - Currently, our Food Pantry is closed in order to protect those who work it. However, if you know of someone who is in desperate need of food, please have them call the parish office at 740-928-3266 to make sure someone is there. When they come to the office they will need to ring the doorbell and either Sharon or Pam will help them. We have prepared emergency bags to give to those needing help. If you have food items to donate, please drop them at the parish office. Thank you! Stay safe and healthy.
