Welcome to the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel website!
Our Pastor is Fr. Dwight Campbell, and Rev. Fr. Robert T. Mc Dermott is our Associate Pastor. Both are also appointed to the same positions at St Therese Parish in Kenosha.
We the parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, both individually and collectively, dedicate ourselves to KNOWING, LOVING and SERVING our God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We strive to Know Him better by providing solid, Catholic teaching in our School, CCD Programs and Adult Education Programs.
We strive to Love Him more fully by the faithful and respectful celebration of His Sacraments, especially the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
We strive to Serve Him better by Service to our neighbors, young and old alike, especially those most unable to help themselves.
We pray that with the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel; St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse; all the Angels and all the Saints; we will be true to this mission until we gather again in Heaven with Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are a Christ-centered faith community that believes in Jesus’ love for all people, so hospitality is one of our core values. We are working hard to have a vibrant parish community that can offer something for everyone. We are in the midst of an exciting time. Please use the navigation links at the top of the page to learn more about our parish. You are welcome to join us!
We are launching an Adult Book Study at St. Therese at the end of this month - Thursday, July 28th - on Dr. Peter Kreeft's "Making Sense out of Suffering".
Marie Pitt-Payne will be leading it for 5 consecutive Thursdays - from 6:30-8pm on July 28, August 4, August 11, August 18 - and concluding on August 25th with a screening of the Academy Award nominated film "Shadowlands" (Anthony Hopkins/Debra Winger - directed by Richard Attenborough), which documents the struggle CS Lewis faced in coming to grips with suffering. The final session will go til 9pm, with refreshments provided.
This is not about easy answers! This is a space for adults to get together and grapple with the reality of pain, sorrow and cruelty in the world around them. We will not shy away from the profound questions raised by "the problem of evil". As Kreeft says, this is a book "for everyone who has wept and wondered."
