In his encyclical, Laudato Si, Pope Francis offers contemporary Western cultures some worthy challenges. The extent to which optional human activity contributes to climate change is open to debate, but it seems to me that it is just a matter of common sense to conserve our non-renewable natural resources. Some of it can start right within churches. It just seems wasteful that I have to wear a jacket in a exclusively cooled church.
Pope Francis covered many subjects, but it seems to me that his non-treatment of breastfeeding, and especially ecological breastfeeding, is truly a significant omission.... (continued here)
Welcome to the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel website! Our Pastor is Fr. Dwight Campbell, S.T.D., and Rev. Fr. Robert T. Mc Dermott is our Associate Pastor. Both are also appointed to the same positions at St Therese Parish in Kenosha. Fr. Campbell and Fr. Reese, (our former Co-Pastor) are Founders of a Society of Diocesan Priests called The Apostles of Jesus Christ Priest & Victim.
We the parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, both individually and collectively, dedicate ourselves to KNOWING, LOVING and SERVING our God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We strive to Know Him better by providing solid, Catholic teaching in our School, CCD Programs and Adult Education Programs.
We strive to Love Him more fully by the faithful and respectful celebration of His Sacraments, especially the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
We strive to Serve Him better by Service to our neighbors, young and old alike, especially those most unable to help themselves.
We pray that with the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Mount Carmel; St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse; all the Angels and all the Saints; we will be true to this mission until we gather again in Heaven with Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are a Christ-centered faith community that believes in Jesus’ love for all people, so hospitality is one of our core values. We are working hard to have a vibrant parish community that can offer something for everyone. We are in the midst of an exciting time. Please use the navigation links at the top of the page to learn more about our parish. You are welcome to join us!
Read Fr. Campbell's Homily from Sunday, July 26th - Part 1 on Understanding the Mass.
Scouting is a wonderful way for boys to grow in virtue and to bond with their fathers in various activities, especially outdoors (camping, hiking, canoeing, etc).
This past week the Boy Scouts of America made it official: they will accept "gay" (i.e. active homosexual) scout leaders. This fundamentally contradicts the Scout code of honor which pledges one to lead a moral lifestyle.
The Troops of St. George is a newly formed Catholic alternative to the Boy Scouts (a non-denominational organization) which emphasizes forming the character of boys and young men in keeping with our Catholic teachings and practices.
A Troop has been formed at St. Therese Parish with members from other parishes - St. Elizabeth, Mt. Carmel, St. James - having joined. We have a canoe trip planned on the Wisconsin River the weekend of August 15/16.
