OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL SCHOOL NEWS

 

For All the Saints…

This week the classrooms and hallways of OLMC School were filled with saints and heroes of the faith.  For the celebration of All Hallow’s Eve and All Saints Day, students were invited to dress up as their favorite saint or as a historical or literary character they would be studying this academic year.  Their creativity complemented their studies and a good time was had by all as the students and parents gathered together after school for games and treats.

 

Like many Christian holidays and memorials, Halloween has become thoroughly secularized and its religious roots forgotten.  At OLMC, we are committed to helping our students to appreciate and recover the rich traditions of our faith.  Rather than featuring the ghostly and ghastly, our students reinforce their lessons by cleverly and creatively impersonating great historical figures and inspiring literary characters.

 

 

Of course, in addition to our daily prayers and devotions, we were deliberate about reflecting on the specifically religious roots of these holy-days.  OLMC students gathered together for Mass on the solemnity of All Saints, and on the feast of All Souls, we visited the OLMC churchyard to remember and to pray for dead.  By recovering the true sense of what it means to hallow the dead, OLMC students grow in their appreciation for and aspiration to holiness.

 

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

Giving thanks to God for a lifetime of blessing

The hardest question you get asked is,

‘Does the baby feel pain?’ 

We had to lie to them or say we don’t know.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Last week, we celebrated the Commemoration of all the Faithful Departed.  During this month of November, we remember in prayer our beloved deceased.  As they are cleansed of their sins so as to be made ready for the life of heaven, we beg God to grant them what they need to make this final journey to Him.

 

It is proper and fitting that, as we remember our departed love ones, we pay them proper respect.  We are blessed as a parish to have a cemetery as part of our community.  This privilege requires additional effort on our part, part of which requires our establishing and maintaining standards for use of the grounds.  The insert in this week bulletin seeks to promulgate and reestablish the standards for the cemetery.  If you have (or will have) family buried in Saint Mary’s Cemetery, please take a moment to review the document.

 

V.  Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
R.  And let the perpetual light shine upon them.

 

And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

 

Christ’s Peace,

Father Daniel
