Walk In Dinner Program
The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic affect everyone, including homeless families and people who are hungry. Our Lady of Mount Carmel is in the business of helping all those people, and we are continuing to do that even in these trying days. With that said, it is of the utmost importance that parishioners stay safe, healthy and do not do anything outside of their comfort zone.
On September 30th OLMC will keep her commitment to serve our most vulnerable brothers and sisters. Join us or donate items for our next Walk-In Dinner program on Wednesday, September 30th by emailing Elliot at email@example.com today!

Discussion on Dorothy DayTBD, November 2020
Discussion on Dorothy Day
Perhaps no other public Catholic figure has been more widely beloved and yet so controversial. A self proclaimed anarchist and a devout Catholic, Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement of the late 19th century exemplify, perhaps better than any other modern Catholic movement, the two seemingly divergent impulses affecting so much of our public faith life. She truly is a Saint for our time. Join us as we discuss her life and legacy and learn if there is any lesson she can provide for this particularly fractured moment in American history.
