Ottobre – 2017

Dear Mount Carmel Community,


The month of October is dedicated to Mary’s Rosary. Try to take 15 minutes during the day to be at peace with the Lord’s life as we honor His mother with Hail Mary’s.    


Wednesday October 4th, is the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, Patron of our State.

Sunday, October 8th, at noon the Religious Education children and their families will pray the Living Rosary. ALL ARE INVITED!

Friday, October 13th, was the final visit of Mary in Fatima 100 years ago with movement of the sun. In Church, from 7:30pm to 9:00pm, we will celebrate with Scripture and the rosary and end with dedication to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Saturday, October 14th, at the 8:00am Mas, the monthly Sacrament of Anointing for those in need will be extended after the homily. At the end of Mass, a Litany, Prayer and Blessing with the Relic of Servite Saint Peregrine, Parton of those suffering from cancer is given.

Wednesday October 18th, we honor Saint Luke the Evangelist. Luke died around the 1st of the century. He was a Syrian physician from Antioch and a companion of Saint Paul. Luke was the author of the Acts of the Apostles, and the Gospel for Gentile Christians (c 70-85). The symbol for Saint Luke is a winged ox. He is the patron of medical professionals and artists.
