Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church

A vibrant community established in 1850 and nestled in the heart of historic Doylestown. Come join us for prayer and services as we continue to strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ.


Due to current pandemic concerns, many are unable to meet our new Pastor in person, we hope the attached video “Bringing Jesus to You” will provide you with the opportunity to become familiar with Fr. Matthew Guckin.   


10 Plagues For 10 Days in 10 Minutes at 10:00 AM – Please join us on OLMC Flocknote starting Monday, August 10, 2020 through Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at 10:00 AM for 10 days of reflection with Fr. Matthew Guckin.

Please Give Further Thought to Online Giving

We readily acknowledge and appreciate the fact that many households will be experiencing a financial strain during this time. But, in light of the temporary suspension of public Masses throughout the Archdiocese and beyond, we respectfully ask that those who have not yet done so seriously consider the “Parish Giving” program that has been in place for a few years here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Parish Giving is an electronic funds transfer program whereby you can make your church contributions automatically from your checking account or credit card. It’s times like this, as well as vacation times and other times away from home, that such a financial arrangement makes so much sense. We still have bills to pay (as you surely do, too). Know that your consistent and sacrificial giving to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish is never taken for granted. This is true now more than ever. God bless you for your generosity!

Greetings everyone!

Please circulate widely the attached Novena—in English and Spanish–in Preparation for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary to bring an End to the Coronavirus.

The Novena begins on Thursday, August 6, and concludes on Friday, August 14, 2020.

This Novena is an Archdiocesan effort and everyone throughout the Archdiocese is invited to be a part of it.  We have confidence in the prayers of our Blessed Mother to come to our heavenly aid at this time.  Pastors are to consider praying the Novena before or after Mass.  It is not to be included within Mass in any form.

Thank you and God bless,

Father Dennis Gill

Please note that if you need a Mass Card, sacrament information, a sponsor form, an appointment with a priest or would like to register at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, contact the parish office and our staff will assist you. We appreciate your cooperation as we navigate this uncertain time. Ministering to our parishioners and safeguarding the safety of our staff and parishioners are our top concerns.
