NATIONAL eGIVING DAYS OF SUMMER

Our Lady of Mount Carmel can take particular joy in these summer days, as our response to eGiving has been wonderful!

To build on this success, I am setting a National eGiving Days of Summer Challenge. My goal is for Our Lady of Mount Carmel families to put envelopes on a permanent summer vacation and make the switch to eGiving this summer. The more families who take this National eGiving Challenge, the more consistent and predictable our offertory will be each month – and this will help us do even more to spread Christ’s love in our community.

Being part of this challenge is simple: Visit www.faithdirect.net and use our church code: NJ791.  Thank you for your continued support of our parish family with your time and talents as well as treasure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

Summer is a time to slow down - I hope! - and enjoy the people and places around us. All the better if we can take vacations, host barbecues, and visit the beach. Things change around here in the summer as well, but we’ve got a lot going on these couple of months. 

This week, I will be with a group of teens from the parish in Hartford, CT. For the second consecutive year, we are going on mission: Jesus has called us to serve Him in serving our neighbor, and that’s what our trip is all about. We are looking forward to meeting some of the needs of the Hartford community - small construction projects, painting, and the like - and we are looking forward to being met by Christ in our need as we become evermore who He is calling us to be in loving God and neighbor! We will no doubt see that all our work pales in comparison to the love of God at work in us and through us to the people we serve.

In addition, on Sunday July 15 we celebrate here our patronal feast: The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. In continuing our new annual tradition, next Sunday should be a fun community-building event for us all.  We will celebrate special Masses all weekend, and process with the statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel after the 11:15 Mass. Following the procession, we will host a reception in Gordon Hall.
 
The weekend’s activities are all significant to our being the Body of Christ, but the procession is a particularly powerful expression of the same. For one, the procession shows that the Body of Christ is at work in the world. As we build Jesus’ kingdom, His civilization of love, on earth as it is in heaven, we realize and make known the fact that God’s love is not confined to the church building. We must bring it out with us when we go. The procession reminds us of precisely that, but it also shows our neighbors that we are committed to the task – and they can call on us to be the Body of Christ! The procession also makes known the fact that God is alive, and that He is on the move. God is at work in every corner of creation, every neighborhood, and we are called to join Him in His work to claim every heart, every life, for Jesus.

It is the Spirit that animates the Body of Christ. That means that, whether or not you can join us on procession or pilgrimage, you can accompany us and support us by your prayers. Please know of my prayers for you as you live out your particular call to bring the love of God to life for the people you encounter!

 

Christ’s Peace,

Father Daniel

SUNDAY, JULY 15 - THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL

Why is money hanging on the statue of Mary?

       “The pinning of money to ribbons dangling from the statues seems to have origins in the practice of many new immigrants, who, to be remembered and as a declaration of their newfound prosperity, sent money back home to be visibly displayed on the statue of the community's patron Saint, in the church and in processions. Today, many devotees simply make a prayer and pin money as an offering in support of the religious institution that is fostering their spiritual belief and needs.“                                                                        - http://www.italianmarketfestival.com/procession-of-saints.html

 

 

 

 

 

SUNDAY, JULY 15 -

 THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL

 

Come join your fellow parishioners as we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Sunday, July 15!  We will celebrate Mass, process the statue of Our Lady through the streets of Boonton, and then enjoy lunch with our OLMC community.

 

Processing a statue is a beautiful tradition that continues to occur in many countries. Some processions are very elaborate, as you can see in the photo, and some, like ours this year, are more subdued.

 

Here's what's happening on Sunday:

  • Masses: Each Mass will be celebrated with special readings and music in honor of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
  • Procession of the Statue: After the 11:15am Mass, please join us as we walk with Our Lady through the streets of Boonton.
  • Lunch: After the procession, all are welcome into Gordon Hall for lunch. If you can, please bring an appetizer or dessert. If you cannot, that’s fine; come on down anyway!

 

 

Procession route:

Out of the Church

Left onto Birch St

Left onto Pine St

Left onto Hill St

Walk along Main St

Left onto Liberty St

Left onto Cedar St

Left onto Oak St

End at Gordon Hall

 

 

 

 

Note that the procession route has one uphill section along Liberty St. and the temperature will probably be hot. There will be water available but please use your judgment with regards to deciding to walk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAST SUNDAY

Due to a suspicious, smokey smell in the narthex (foyer) of the Church last weekend, the Boonton Fire Department was called to investigate.  They arrived quickly, and under the leadership of Battalion Chief Eric Joinson and with the help of many firefighters – and parishioner / firefighters - including Jim Wendt who has an extensive understanding of the Church’s physical layout, a thorough investigation of the building and surroundings was performed. Although no fire was found (thank you, Jesus!), precautions were put in place, and both the fire department and police department made rounds throughout the afternoon and evening to ensure that all was safe.  On Tuesday, an electrician replaced lighting components and fixtures, and the smell has been dissipating.

 

Many thanks to the Boonton Fire and Police departments for their care and attention to our beloved Church, and may God bless and protect them always.
