All public Masses in the Diocese of Erie suspended until further notice

A letter of encouragement from Bishop Persico to the Faithful

Due to the recommendation of Erie County and the Diocese of Erie, there will be NO distribution of palms this Palm Sunday. The health and safety of our parishioners are of utmost importance to us.

COVID-19 and being quarantined is a sacrifice that we didn’t choose, but it allows us to focus on what matters, our faith, and our families! We know these are difficult times for everyone, including you and your family. Our Lady of Mount Carmel remains committed to the spiritual care of our parishioners and the faithful in our communities. Please be assured of our prayers for you and your families, particularly in the daily private Masses being offered. We may not be able to receive the Eucharist, but we can come together and be the living Body of Christ through Facebook, My Parish App. And our website. We are working hard to develop resources that will be added regularly on our page. Remember, we are all in this together, and we will GET THROUGH IT as
One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church! 

Please be aware that, like any family, our parish has ongoing operating costs. We are entirely dependent upon you to meet those financial obligations. Please continue to make your weekly offertory gifts.  You may drop your envelope in the parish office dropbox.
