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

The Ministry of Consolation invites you to attend “Journey into Hope.” This six-week bereavement support group began on Wednesday, March 27 in Goretti Hall. Members will meet others who have suffered loss, and explore their own individual grief process in a safe, non-judge mental environment. If you are interested in attending, or would like more information, please register for this free workshop online by clicking here, or by calling the parish rectory at 440-585-0700.

Anointing Mass

Saturday, April 27 @ 4:00 pm Mass

Please see a member of the Legion of Mary at the church entrances before Mass if you wish to be anointed.

The Rite of Anointing tells us there is no need to wait until a person is at the point of death to receive the Sacrament. A careful judgment about the serious nature of the illness is sufficient.

When the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is given, the hoped-for effect is that, if it be God's will, the person be physically healed of illness. But even if there is no physical healing, the primary effect of the Sacrament is a spiritual healing by which the sick person receives the Holy Spirit's gift of peace and courage to deal with the difficulties that accompany serious illness or the frailty of old age.
