Building Disciples, Sharing Love
A Message From Fr. Seth
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
How blessed are we to be able to walk this Lenten Journey with one another as members of Our Lady of Mount Carmel! No matter what is happening around us — be it a pandemic, challenges in our culture, or social strife — Our Lady of Mount Carmel is our rock. It is the place where we can come together, gathered around the Altar of the Eucharist, to worship and serve.
It is also the place where we serve one another. Here, united in God’s love, we are a visible sign of the body of Christ and together we can accomplish amazing things. Nourished by prayer and the sacraments, members of our parish community are journeying on the path of discipleship and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ each day. We value formation in the faith and sharing our faith with others through evangelization. We also know the importance of bringing the love of God to our neighbors through acts of charity and service. Through our many ministries, and our social and service-oriented outreach programs, we put into action the truth stated so eloquently by St. John the Apostle: “If God so loved us, we also must love one another” (1 Jn 4:11).
With this in mind, I invite you to respond to Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s new stewardship program: “Building Disciples, Sharing Love.” Please review the contents of this brochure and prayerfully consider how you and your family can play an active role in continuing the work of Jesus Christ through our parish community. Our goal is to increase our Sunday offertory contributions in order to bring Jesus Christ to as many people as possible. This is no easy task in today’s climate, but I am confident that our dedicated parishioners are up to the challenge.
On March 5th, the parish will be holding a special Commitment Weekend, inviting members of our community to connect with one another and to make a financial commitment that will allow Our Lady of Mount Carmel to continue its important work. We are counting on you! Please participate in our “Building Disciples, Sharing Love” Program and help us respond to God’s great gift of love by loving one another with the heart of His Son.
Thank you for your generosity, prayers, and commitment to Our Lady of Mount Carmel!
Reverend Seth D. Wasnock

Love Your Parish
Here, united in God’s love, we are a visible sign of the Body of Christ and together we do great things. Nourished by prayer and the sacraments, the members of our parish community are journeying on the path of discipleship and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ daily. We value discipleship and evangelization.
Love Your Savior
As we strive to love one another better, good stewardship plays a key role. Stewardship isn’t a code word for financial support. Stewardship is about doing the work of Christ and engaging our many resources to further the ministry and mission of Our Lord. Remembering that everything we have is a gift from our creator.
Love Your Neighbor
We know the importance of bringing the love of God to our neighbors. Through our many ministries, and our social and service-oriented outreach programs, we put into action the truth stated so eloquently by St. John the Apostle: “If God so loved us, we also must love one another” (1 Jn 4:11).
