Our Lady of Mount Carmel School News

Light the World Walk-A-Thon

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is hosting a walkathon on Friday, May 12.  The “Light the World Walk” reflects the school and parish's mission to prepare our students to be messengers of God’s light and love to the world--Lumen Gentium.  The walk is also an important and much-needed part of the annual fundraising goals for the school.  It is a wonderful opportunity to connect the whole OLMC Family, including our sponsors, friends, and other supporters.  Visit our web page at: olmcedu.org/walkathon to list your sponsors and make donations. Questions? Please email: walkathon@olmcboonton.org

 

Bingo Extravaganza

On Friday, April 28, the HSA is hosting a Bingo Extravaganza.  The event will help raise money for Our Lady of Mount Carmel School.  Doors will open at 5:30pm, and the first game will be called at 7:30pm. We hope to see you all there!  For tickets, contact Melissa Clark (Melissa.a.clark34@gmail.com).  Additional information can be found at www.olmcboonton.org

 

Blessing Bags

The students of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School put the words of their motto Lumen Gentium- meaning “A light to the nations”- into action this past Lent by creating over 100 “Blessing Bags” that will be distributed to people who are homeless in the community. Students from Pre-K through 8th grade brought in supplies such as socks, water bottles, snacks, lip balm, facial wipes, etc. Once the bags of about 15 essential items were assembled by way of a middle school student- led assembly line in the gym, Fr. Daniel O’Mullane administered a blessing over the bags and led the students in a prayer for the recipients.  Bags will be distributed to those in need by Family Promise of Morris County in Morristown and Heart & Hands Mission in Hoboken.

 

 

 

A special thank you to all of the OLMC school families who contributed as well as Hoboken Orthodontics and Dr. Mitchell Kirschbaum M DDS of Boonton for donations of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss. This Lenten service project was a huge success and will no doubt shine a little light in the lives of many people.

FUNERAL MINISTRY TEAM

     Are you interested in one of the more challenging and rewarding ministries at Our Lady of Mount Carmel? Please consider joining our funeral ministry team.

     We are currently recruiting people to help serve funeral Masses at OLMC. This involves basic altar-server duties, as well as occasionally reading and serving as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.

     Our recent need – having four funeral Masses this past week alone – has presented our team with serious challenges, and we are ready for some new members to come onboard.

     Please let me (Father Daniel) know if you can pitch in. Contact me at pastor@olmcboonton.org or (973) 334-1017. Our Masses are always served by at least two people, and you will receive training before you get started.

 

 

 

THE CASE FOR CHRIST

OLMC YOUTH MISSION TRIP

Catholic Heart Work Camp

OLMC is offering a wonderful summer camp opportunity for high school students.  From July 9 – 15 we have reserved spots to participate at Catholic Heart Work Camp in Oil City, PA.  The experience combines community service--to help those in need, such as painting, yard work, or minor home repairs--along with a youth group retreat.  We have a small number of spots available for interested students. At least one or two parents will be needed as chaperones as well. Transportation will be arranged to the site from OLMC. This is a great opportunity for the youth of our parish to help serve others while having fun in a youth-group-directed environment. Please contact Colleen Schechter at scmf@optonline.net . To find out more about Catholic Heart Work Camp, please visit http://heartworkcamp.com

 

 

OLMC SCHOOL SECURITY

Additional Funds Needed to Secure OLMC School

This summer, we will install additional security at OLMC School. A new fob system will be paired with new locks, and cameras at the school’s entrances will allow for greater scrutiny of who is coming into the building.

The total cost for this part of our ongoing security upgrade is $13,000. $3,000 is being paid by the State, leaving us with $10,000 to raise for the project’s completion.

If you write a check to OLMC or OLMC School for the security project, please be sure to indicate that on the memo line. Thank you for your generosity!

 

 

ESTATE PLANNING

You want to help others but are concerned about cash for your future?

A gift of assets can be made through your will or other estate plans and will not affect your cash flow now. OLMC will work to manage the assets or money you leave us so that we can continue to expand our faith ministries and serve the people of Boonton and beyond in our life-changing mission. For more information about making gifts of assets contact Father Daniel: pastor@olmcboonton.org or (973) 334-1017. Remember, just 10% of your estate endows our future.

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Included in this week’s bulletin is a letter certifying Bonny O’Mullane’s status as a Spiritual Mentor.

 

Many of you already know Bonny to be a prayerful, loving woman. She is deeply committed to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and to the many parishioners who call OLMC home.

 

Bonny already has a number of people she is working with as a spiritual mentor. If this note piques your curiosity, feel free to be in touch with us about how she - or someone else on our staff - can help you draw closer to God in prayer.

In the Peace of the Risen Christ,
  Father Daniel

 

 

Dear Father O’Mullane,

 

Congratulations to you and one of your parishioners. On January 15, 2017, Bonny O’Mullane completed a two-year course of study and received a Certificate of Completion as a Catholic “Spiritual Mentor”.

 

A Catholic “Spiritual Mentor” is a lay Catholic or religious, trained in giving spiritual guidance.  The Catholic Spiritual Mentorship Program is in accord with the Charism of the Apostles of the Interior Life, supported by the School of Faith, and approved by Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Kansas City Diocese in Kansas.  Both the Apostles of the Interior Life (apostlesofil.com) and the School of Faith (schooloffaith.com) cooperate in an online and in-person formation that is in strict agreement with the teachings and beliefs of the Catholic Church. 

 

A Spiritual Mentor guides a person towards holiness through prayer, the virtues, Sacraments and the discovery of God’s will in their life, with the understanding that the Mentor is the humble instrument of the Holy Spirit.

 

We appreciate the support you have given Bonny in completing her studies.  At your discretion as pastor, we hope that she will be a helpful resource for spiritual guidance.  If there are others in your parish that you feel would be good candidates, feel free to share this information with them. 

 

Yours through Christ,

 

 

Sr. Susan Pieper                                                              Mike Scherschligt

President                                                                       Director

Apostles of the Interior Life                                            Holy Family School of Faith
