Mt Carmel Parishioners to hold a vigil on Wednesday at 6 PM on Wednesday, May 4, at Mt Carmel – St. Anne Church, Worcester
The parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel-St. Anne invite all to share in a prayer vigil for the continuation of the parish family at the current site on Mulberry St. at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 4.
Let us join together to celebrate this vibrant community, its history and its legacy.
We may not be able to save the church building but we must save the parish.
Check out the parish financial at: http://worcesterdiocese.org/documents/2015/12/Mount%20Carmel%20-%20Worcester.pdf and compare with other parishes in the diocese.
Our revenue is adequate – it’s the management of the expenses.
Let the clergy administer the sacraments and the parishioners manage the operations and finance.
Please join us in solidarity and friendship on Wednesday.
Hopefully, this will culminate in a dialogue with the diocese on ways to keep Mt. Carmel-St. Anne whole.
Life-long parish member
