If you have recently visited Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church for your worship enrichment, I welcome you!. My hope is that you found our Parish a warm, welcoming and inspirational environment. This parish was established in 1923 with the designation of an ethnic-Italian parish, which means we have no physical boundaries in accepting new parishioners. We have been privileged to incorporate new people of various ethnicities to keep us energized and motivated.
If you would like to make Our Lady of Mount Carmel your home parish, I invite you to contact the Parish Office to request a Census Form. You may also download the form from our webiste by selecting the "Resources" and choosing "Forms". I strive to provide all visitors and parishioners alike the opportunity to share their time, talents and treasures with us. Opportunities are available by joining the Holy Name Society; offered to the men of the parish, the St. Ann Society and Altar Society, open to the women of the parish, the Forever Young Seniors, open to men and women 55 and over, and volunteers are always needed for Lectors at Mass, for both our Adult and Youth Choirs, at the annual OLMC Feast in July, catechist for the Religious Education program and our OLMC Bingo every Thursday at our School, among other possibilities to become actively involved in the parish.
Please feel free to introduce yourself to me at whatever Mass you attend. It is important to me to make a personal connection with each person who has chosen this beautiful parish. May the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel continue to bless you as you try each day to become more like her divine son.
God Bless you,
Fr. Frederick M. Aniello, Pastor
