The mission of this ministry is to provide a prayerful environment for individuals to share their love of knitting and/or crocheting and to reach out to those in need of comfort with solace and prayers. The knitter and/or crocheter begins each prayer shawl/scarf/afghan with prayers and blessings for the recipient, and when the creation is completed it is blessed by the Priest before being presented to the recipient. Baptismalare also created for all children baptized here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. All creations are free and available to all who request them. Knitting meets Tuesday mornings at 10:00 AM in the Church Hall. New Knitters are always welcome. Please contact the Parish Office if interested.
"Shawls...made for centuries, universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover and give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles

Of all societies for men, The Holy Name Society is the greatest. The Society owes its origin to Pope Gregory X in the year 1274, who commanded the newly-founded Dominican Order to develop greater devotion to the Holy Name of God and of Jesus Christ. The Society helps to serve Catholic-Christian men in their continuing effort to serve Christ through their parish.
The Holy Name Society of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is celebrating their 83rd year. We invite men to join this Society to honor our Lord’s name through prayer and action.
Annually, on Father’s Day, the society members gather at the 8:15 a.m. Mass in honor of the deceased members.
