Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish
The presence, gifts, and talents of you and your family renew and re-energize our community. As a family, we celebrate together as brothers and sisters, and celebrate as one in Christ Jesus who inspires and perfects our faith.
We are blessed to be located in the beautiful city of Wickliffe, the dynamic district of Lake and Geauga Counties, and the inspiring Diocese of Cleveland.
As such, we regularly come together in community and as Church to enter more fully into the mystery of Christ. Our parish provides support and encouragement, hope and love, and Sacraments and worship. You are ever in my prayers, and I ask that you pray for me!
Fr. Thomas Behrend, Pastor
Each month, I will focus a bulletin article on answering questions from you. Please click here to submit a question regarding Church teachings, social justice issues, parish concerns, or theological clarifications. While I may not be able to answer each question personally, I hope to address several of them in this monthly addition to the bulletin.
Sunday, July 22:
95th Anniversary Celebration
Throughout the month of July, we will be acknowledging both the future and history of our parish. The culmination of this significant anniversary will be held on Sunday, July 22. We welcome Bishop Roger Gries for a special Mass at 3:00 pm, followed by a Marian procession (weather permitting), and concluding with a potluck picnic for the entire parish.
If you are able to contribute to the picnic, we ask that families A-M bring a side dish, and N-Z bring a dessert.
Make sure you save the dates and plan to attend this wonderful observance in the life of our parish family.
Scripture Study with
"Psalms of Anger and Salvation"
July 26, 28 and August 2, 4
Fr. Greg Olszewski will offer a two-week series on “Psalms of Anger and Salvation.” During this two-week series, Fr. Greg O. will examine the Book of the Bible known as the Psalms. Out of the 150 Psalms, we’ll focus on those that bring emotions of anger, fear and forgiveness amid God’s healing mercy and His gift of salvation for us. A key question to be asked is “Can I be angry with God and not sin?”
The two parts of the series will be offered twice each week (the Thursday evening session will be repeated on Saturday morning). All sessions will take place in the church and last approximately one hour. Please bring your own Bible (note the New American Bible translation will be used).
