Welcome to Our Lady of Mt. 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!
