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 $3000 grant, Helping the Needy and Homeless in the Buckeye Lake Region to provide help with rent, utilities, housing of the homeless and other needs which might arise. Our second grant entitled, Bringing the Bible to the People, provides our mixed Bible Study group with $2,000 for two series to be presented in the Fall and Spring with very little to no cost to the participants. Keeping Our Children and Parishioners Safe, our third grant in the amount of $2,500, will go towards purchasing “kick locks” for the PSR classrooms and hall doors, purchasing a classroom to classroom intercom system, and a bullhorn to be used in case of evacuation to disperse information. Thank you again to The Catholic Foundation and their donors for their continued commitment and support!

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.
Check the calendar!!
We are at the end of our liturgical year! Advent--and the new year--begins November 28. With Christmas on Saturday this year, the various feasts and celebrations can make for a confusing schedule. Please check our Events calendar to keep everything straight!!
