OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL SCHOOL NEWS

 

Montessori Pre-Primary Education at OLMC
Ideal Preparation for School, Ideal Preparation for Life-Long Learning

 

Montessori instruction has long been a part of the tradition of educational excellence at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. This year, OLMC is building on past success and expanding the scope of Montessori to encompass all Pre-Primary students.

 

Together, Shirley Miho and Ann Saadat have served our families by providing nurturing and stimulating early education for many years. This year, their collaboration is being formalized as together they provide Montessori instruction for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students.

 

 

Under the direction of Mrs. Miho, who brings decades of experience with the Montessori approach to developing the whole child (physically, emotionally, and intellectually), the enriched program reflects the Montessori design of multiyear instruction for early education. Each child in this loving, orderly, and comfortable environment develops a love of learning at his or her own pace, and together they grow in confidence in their capacity to tackle any challenge. The signature one-on-one tutorial format allows the teacher to guide and challenge each individual child, while the shared learning environment prepares all the children to work collaboratively, grow together in the habits of inquiry, deepen their understanding of Catholic faith and practice, and develop the virtues of charity and friendship.

 

 

Montessori is an ideal platform for future schooling at OLMC and beyond, and it’s a great start for life-long learning!

 

We all shop-–Buying gift cards through OLMC helps fund our school garden without any additional out-of-pocket expense for families.  

It’s easy to purchase gift cards:

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU

Dear Father Daniel,

 

Thank you so much for your weekly emails. 

They are always interesting and informative.  I am writing today to thank you for signing up the parish for the website/app, FORMED.  This is indeed a remarkable gift with so many of the highest quality Catholic resources.  I want to make sure that as many parishioners as possible take advantage of this wonderful resource as some of them may have been on vacation when you sent the link and others may not have realized just how many movies, documentaries, audio books, prayers and so much more are available on this site.

 

--A Parishioner

 

 

 

 

 

Deo Gratias Society – giving thanks to God for a lifetime of blessing

 

Consider making or updating your will, and joining OLMC’s Deo Gratias Society, with the following simple language: After all my bills are paid, I want 10 percent of my estate (a tithe) to go to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.

Your thoughtful planning will endow our future and leave a legacy of love that will last forever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

We celebrated the Feast of Saint Matthew this week (September 21).

 

I love Matthew’s story of how Jesus called him. This for three reasons: 1. It is clear that Matthew has done nothing to merit Jesus’ call; 2. Matthew “got up” and “followed” Jesus; and 3. Jesus finds himself at table in Matthew’s house.

 

Why does this all matter?

 

1. How often do we try to earn what God gives? “God, I’ll do y for you if you do x for me.” This gets things worse than backwards: God loves us, and anything we do in the realm of true religion is a response to that love, an overflowing of his love for us.

 

2. The words Matthew uses, “got up,” are resurrection words. Matthew’s getting up is his transferral to a new life. It is a life no longer bound to the idolatries of the world - money, power, pleasure, prestige, etc. - but now lived for God, with God. Matthew now trusts Jesus with his whole life, and so he follows him. When we trust Jesus more than anything (or anyone) else, we find ourselves following him wherever he leads. Matthew ended up a martyr in Ethiopia as the first author of the Gospel. What might God do with our lives when we turn them over to Jesus?

 

3. Following Jesus does not necessarily mean that everything in our life is uprooted, but it does mean that we entrust every aspect of our heart and life to Jesus. People might not have thought that Jesus would make friends with people who were unworthy, but that’s what he did. Likewise, he wants to go wherever we go so that his love reaches every corner of his creation.

 

Try looking online for this scene from The Bible series. With Caravaggio’s painting, it’s one of my favorite depictions of this life-changing event.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Daniel
