Our Lady of Mount Carmel School News

Second Grade Hunt for Treasure

Second Grade read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. Upon finishing the book, students participated in a treasure hunt of their own. Each student was given a character and was required to compose a biography on and impersonate this character. Subsequently, the characters split into teams. Pirates and sailors alike set off in search of treasure. The children were given clues in the form of riddles they needed to solve in order to find the treasure. The last riddle brought them to the treasure box itself. Just as in the classic tale, the sailors found the treasure first.

A SEMINAR ON PRAYER

Thursday, March 23rd

Are you searching for happiness?

Do you want a greater sense of meaning and purpose in life?

If so, join us for a 1-hour seminar on prayer and meditation.

We will show you how to move closer to God every day using a method trusted by many of the Saints.

Fr. Daniel and Bonny O’Mullane will present this approach to prayer and very much hope you can attend.

Sessions will be at 1:00pm and 7:30pm in Gordon Hall on Thursday, March 23.

 

 

 

Dear Friends,


Please do come to one of our seminars on prayer this coming Thursday. Both will be hosted in Gordon Hall, and you can come at either 1:00pm or 7:30pm. You won't regret it!

One of my deepest desires as a priest is to help people pray. If we get prayer right - or we just get a bit better at it - our lives are changed for the better. The same joy and peace I experience in prayer is there for everyone, and I want you to share it.

Bonny O'Mullane has just finished intensive training to be a spiritual mentor, and she has some great practical advice to share with us on prayer. No doubt, we will all profit from her experience.

And yes, prayer is a Lenten practice. This seminar will help you meet your goal of drawing closer to God these blessed weeks.

 

Yours in Christ,
Father Daniel

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,


Thank you to all who participated in my Installation Mass last weekend. It was exactly as I wanted it to be: a celebration for the entire parish.

We have so much to celebrate at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, not least that God is alive and active in our midst.

I am looking forward to many good years with you.

 

Christ's Peace,
Father Daniel
