Welcome

 

Welcome to the Our Lady of Mount Carmel website and thank you for visiting us.  We are a faith-based community focused on bringing the Gospel of Christ to life in our homes, community, and the world.  As a Christian community, we are called to worship God, to study and to live the teachings of the Gospels and to serve our fellow man as Jesus has commanded us.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a small family-oriented parish which allows our parishioners to form lasting friendships.  We celebrate with each other in times of joy, support each other in times of need, and comfort each other in times of sorrow.  Through the efforts of our Knights of Columbus, St. Vincent de Paul, and Parish Food Pantry, we extend our care to the surrounding community.  We welcome you and invite you to worship with us!

Be a part of the planning process for the future of our parish!!

Sign up now to attend one of the planning sessions for our parish.  In-person sessions will be held at OLMC on November 2 and 4.  These are important meetings to discuss our future and what might happen short-term and long-term.  No action is not an option!

Sign up here for the November 2 session:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwoce2tpzIuGtXPRLol8cnmruFsGEENvQuX

Sign up here for the November 4 session:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAucuqgrDMrEtd8PVV1DwBfUcRfrDFMjCwK

Only one registration is necessary, as the same information will be discussed at both sessions.  If you cannot attend either of these sessions in person, sign up anyway, so you can watch the video presentation at a later date.

NEWS BULLETIN

GOODBYE, BISHOP BRENNAN!  Bishop Brennan has been re-appointed and will be leaving the Diocese of Columbus in November.  To show him our appreciation and wish him well, there is a card at the door of the church (near the baptismal font) for any parishioners to sign, if they wish.  Bishop Brennan has blessed us by attending our parish picnics and has enjoyed visiting our parish as much as we have enjoyed having him here.  Let's wish him well and send him to New York with a wonderful keepsake from our paish!  The card will be available to be signed after the masses for the next few weekends.  If you are unable to sign the card in person, you may send an email message to Sharon in the parish office; these messages will be compiled and included with the card.

Updates

Fall Parish Consultation Sessions Coming! As part of the ongoing strategic process for Real Presence, Real Future, the Diocese of Columbus will be hosting Consultation Sessions for each parish throughout the Fall. 

Two Sessions will be held via Zoom videoconferencing for each parish in the Diocese.  Facilitators will guide parishioners through important statistical and sacramental information relevant to the Diocese as a whole, to parishes in surrounding areas, as well as individual parish information.  Parishioner participation in these sessions is critical to helping shape the future of the Diocese of Columbus.

The Parish Consultation Sessions are a vital part of the planning process that encourages parishioners to offer insights and perspective on the future planning of their parish.  The feedback provided during these sessions will be used to draft new models for review by parishioners in early 2022.  The consultation process will continue throughout 2022 until final models are approved.  No decisions have been made regarding any parish, and none will be made until feedback is gathered directly from parishioners through the consultation process.

Every parishioner in the Diocese is encouraged to attend!  Please plan to participate and invite others to do the same.  Registration is required by logging onto www.realpresencerealfuture.org. Even if you are not able to participate, register anyway. All registrants will receive a link to the recording via email after the session.

Bishop Brennan is encouraging the faithful to register for and participate in your parish’s fall consultation session as a part of the Real Presence, Real Future Planning Initiative. These parish consultation sessions represent a critical moment in Real Presence, Real Future. From your parish consultation session, you will be able to better understand the current state of your parish and find out how you can provide important feedback in this initial step of shaping the future of the Diocese of Columbus. Bishop Brennan has recorded two videos – one in English and one in Spanish – promoting this. To access the videos on our website, go to Catholic Links and click on the first link, it will have the Bishop’s message.
