DECEMBER 3, 2023

Thank you to the children in our Religious Education Program for your generous contributions this week.

This Friday, December 8th, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy Day of Obligation. Masses will be held at 8 AM, 12 Noon, and 7:30 PM in the main church. Additionally, this year, our Youth Ministry is organizing an International Rosary Prayer Service accompanied by an indoor candlelight procession at 6:30 PM to honor Our Lady. Please mark your calendar to attend this beautiful event.

Next Saturday, December 9th, the Rosary Society will hold its Annual Christmas Luncheon in the Institute. Enjoy a delightful lunch catered by Cronin & Phelan, including a choice of wine, for just $45 per person. The event will feature raffles for gift baskets and a 50/50 draw. Seats are limited, so please reserve your tickets at the parish office by this coming Thursday.

During this Advent Season, we invite you to memorialize a Christmas wreath for $35 each, honoring your loved ones. These wreaths will decorate the exterior of our church, adding to the festive and prayerful ambiance of the holiday season. You can reserve a wreath using the form in the bulletin or at the parish office.

Our 16th annual Christmas Giving Box campaign begins this weekend and will continue through January 1st. The boxes are located in the main and side vestibules of the church. We welcome donations in the form of cash, checks made out to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or gift cards. Your generosity will benefit some parishioners who are in need this season.

On Thursday, December 14, join us for our Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at 7PM in front of the Rectory. The event will feature live performances by our parish choirs and the Mariachi Youth Band, a visit from Santa Claus, special blessings, and toy gifts for all children. Hot refreshments will be served. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with your family and friends.
