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!

Let us draw near … with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith … Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess.  Hebrew 10:22-23

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is every Thursday after the 8:30 a.m. Mass.  Benediction to follow at 4:00 p.m.

Questions or to sign up for a specific time please call the Parish Rectory at 215-348-4190
