Welcome to the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Since the formation of this Parish in 1923, it has strived to meet the spiritual as well as the social needs of the Italian community. Together let us continue in faith, hope and love to serve the needs of one another and in so doing lead others to Christ. In thought and prayer let us remember those who have gone before us and try each day to carry out the work they started. May the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel watch over and protect us on our journey.
-Fr. Frederick Aniello, Pastor
A PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
O most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me that you are my Mother, O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Our Lady of the Brown Scapular, I am your child, clothe me with your own virtues. Have pity and protect me from all harm. Lord God, Father of all, may the prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother and Queen of Carmel, protect all her children and bring us closer to Jesus Christ, Your Son. Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you. Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
