Our Lady of Mount Carmel's position could not be better stated then the following statement of our Cardinal - Archbishop:
"I understand the desire for every American to be assured of safe borders and freedom from terrorism. The federal government should continue a prudent policy aimed at protecting citizens. I also understand and heed the call of God, who through Moses told the people of Israel: “You shall not oppress an alien; you well know how it feels to be an alien, since you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt” (Ex 23:9)."
READ THE CARDINAL'S FULL STATEMENT
The parish community of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel is offering a series of catecheses aiming to bring us into a deeper relationship with Christ and a maturation of our faith. It is often the case that as Catholics we have received some Christian formation before our 1st Communion and Confirmation and then after that it's sink or swim.
Often life throws us curveballs, unexpected problems arise, crises appear and we many times we might not have an answer to our sufferings and difficulties. These catechesis come to open our eyes to the fact that God exists! God is not indifferent to our sufferings and problems, but that he has responded to us in the person of Christ! Christ is alive and looking for each one of us. Come, meet him.
The catechesis will be held for a number of weeks on Mondays and Thursdays at 8PM - from January 30 to March 24 - in the basement of the church (accessible from the Passaic St. plaza). There is no sign up, no fee, no requirements.
