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

“Beta” Program

Thursday, June 20 @ 6:30 pm
Goretti Hall

The Eucharistic liturgy is saturated with the presence of the Holy Spirit. From the moment you decide to go to Mass the Holy Spirit is active and alive. Sadly, many people don’t experience the Holy Spirit, and attending Mass becomes a chore for them rather than a life giving encounter with Jesus. In this segment we will look at a few of the many ways that the Holy Spirit is present in the Mass that will enable you to encounter God when you attend the Liturgy. Join us on Thursday, June 20 at 6:30 pm in Goretti Hall as our Beta discussion group prays through the “Wild Goose” video series in preparation for the celebration of Corpus Christi. As always, this gathering will include a potluck; feel free to bring a snack to share!
