For our next Great Books discussion, we will scare up some some ideas about stories by Poe and Wilde:  The Fall of the House of Usher  and The Canterville Ghost. We will meet on Monday,  October 1st, in Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel’s parish ministry center, 708 W. Belmont, from 6 pm until 8 pm.

Fall Fest 2018 Coming September 22nd

Planning is already underway! For those of you who joined us last year, you know what a great time we had. For those of you that didn’t, we promise it will be just as great. Details will follow but keep you calendar clear. This is the only fundraising event we do for the parish, so it’s important. Want to help out? Contact the OLMC Communio Committee.

Book Clubs for All Interests!

Did you know there are 3 separate book clubs at OLMC? Something for everyone!

  • Great Books Club. This club reads some of the greatest books of all time… with a focus on the classics. They meet monthly, typically on the first Monday of each month. Contact Malachy Walsh for more information. Thank you Malachy for hosting this great group!

  • Spiritual Book Club. This group focuses on just that… spiritual topics. With deep gratitude to Katherine Delaney for organizing this great group. Contact Katherine for more information.

  • Sunday Book Club  This Club meets at the Parish Ministry Center to discuss some great books. Watch the bulletin and calendar for more information, or contact Mary Ann Wright.  

Interested in starting a new club or group? All ideas are welcome! Contact the Parish Office and they can help you get started.

Parish Winter Coat Drive

As we hopefully approach the end of cooler weather, it’s a good time to remind all that we are collecting coats for our annual coat drive for distribution in October. If you can donate, please drop off coats at any weekend Mass or at the Parish Ministry Center (708 W Belmont), during the week. Want to find out more? Contact the Parish Office.

Women's Club

The Women’s Group meets in alternating months. Check the Calendar for future events. All women of the parish are welcome. Any questions? Contact the Parish Office.

Help Wanted

We have so many great ideas for events, fund raisers, and volunteer opportunities. But we lack people who are willing to commit some time. We are looking for a co-leader for the Young Adult group, volunteers to help lead social gatherings, and a leader or two for the Men’s Club. Interested? Contact the Parish Office.

Join the Community Outreach Group

Lots of opportunities to get involved. No commitment required. Come when you can. We promise you won’t leave without feeling better than when you started. Want to find out more? Contact Deacon Richard anytime.
