Dear Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Family,

        As we look forward to our 95th anniversary next year, we will be creating a Pastoral Plan. This five year plan will examine the needs and concerns of our Parish community, and be fulfilled by our 100th anniversary in 2023.

        In order to accomplish this fittingly and well, we need everyone's help. I ask each person to complete this survey which will assist the Parish staff in listening, learning, and evaluating what we do well and where we need to grow as a parish.

      By listening to the thoughts, opinions, and observations of our Parish family, we will be better equipped to discern the future of our community. Thank you for your assistance, and I anticipate advancing into our milestone anniversaries with hope, faith, and joy!

       Remember that I love you, there is no way I will love you less, and I will continue to pray for you every day.

- Fr. Thomas Behrend
