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.



Please join me in welcoming our new parochial vicar,
Father Greg Olszewski! 
Fr. Greg was ordained in 2006, and has served at St. Ambrose (Brunswick), Mary Queen of the Apostles (Brook Park), Ss. Peter and Paul (Garfield Heights), and Holy Family (Parma).
On behalf of our entire staff and parish community,
I extend our warm welcome to Fr. Greg!

Upcoming Events


Thursday, May 24:

Scripture Study
 7 - 8:00 pm

Beginning on April 26, Fr. Greg Olszweski will offer a six week series of "The Acts of the Apostles and Its Insights for 21st Century People." He will examine the Book of the Bible known as Luke's Volume 2 (Luke's Gospel as Volume 1). Acts begins with a mighty event and concludes with Paul's final counsel. In between we hear about the new Way of Christ Jesus starts to spread to the Mediterranean world with accounts of encounters with both elite and common people.

You can attend one session or all; we hope to see you there!
