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

Tuesday, October 17: Bishop Nelson Welcome Mass
At the recommendation of the College of Consultors, Bishop Perez was asked to meet with the priests of the diocese as soon as possible. He was excited to have these meetings and even went further. The Bishop suggested that in addition to meeting with the priests, there should be a Mass scheduled with a reception, where he can meet the people.
This Mass for Lake and Geauga District is scheduled for Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00 pm at Saint Mary in Chardon.
