A SHORT, SHORT - FROM THE PASTOR
If you didn’t get a chance on Commitment Weekend to sign up for a ministry, you still have this weekend to do so. Commitment cards are still in the pews. Just fill one out and put it in one of the boxes at the doors of the church. Remember , Mount Carmel will only be a vibrant parish if you make it one.

NEXT WEEKEND, the boxes at the doors of the church will be for a special collection for Haiti Hurricane Relief. We have all been reading about the numbers of dead, the spread of disease and the hunger of the survivors. Parts of the orphanage we support, through Fr. Marc, were also severely damaged. Any help would be appreciated.

Below is an introduction by Sister Mary Spano who has begun her ministry here at OLMC:

A NOTE FROM SR. MARY
Dear friends,
My name is Sister Mary Spano. I am a Sister of Charity of St Elizabeth, from Convent Station, NJ. Our Convent and College of St. Elizabeth are on the same campus, in Morristown.

I am honored to be working and ministering with this excellent staff and parishioners, in such a vibrant and faith-filled community. I come with an open heart, to carry on in the early legacy of our Sisters who have given 65 years in this Parish School, from 1923 to 1998. Many of you may have been taught by our Sisters.

I follow, in the footsteps of Sr. Lucy, who served so many of our parishioners in the Ministry to the Aged and Infirmed. Sr. Lucy may have been small in stature, (I am told she could barely be seen over the steering wheel of the car that she drove) but Sister had a big, energetic, persuasive heart! In knowing Sister Lucy I realize the deep love, compassion, and commitment she had for the people of this parish, particularly the elderly and those in need. For 22 years Sister served the spiritual and corporal needs of our parishioners.

With God’s help and yours, too, I pray for the grace to continue in the footsteps of Sr. Lucy who came to you 40 years ago! (Amazing how many older parishioners have mentioned Sister’s name since I’ve been here.)

To tell you a little bit about myself: I am the youngest of three children born to a first generation Irish Mother and an Italian Father. For the first few years of my life, I lived in Brooklyn with summers in the country. Then the family moved year-round into what was our summer log cabin, in Shady Lake, West Milford, NJ.

I attended Catholic schools, and like so many of our Sisters, graduated from the College of St Elizabeth with a degree in Elementary Education. I was fortunate to continue in education, earning a master’s degree from Immaculate Conception Seminary, Darlington; and then becoming and maintaining certification in the National Association of Catholic Chaplains.

Over the years my ministries have included that of teaching, social service and outreach to the sick, homebound, and elderly in hospitals, hospice, and other healthcare settings. And for 4 and a half years I worked in Haiti (just prior to the earthquake), serving the poor and needy, in parishes, schools, and hospitals.

My desire is that as a parish family/community we could continue to grow and use the gifts and talents that God has given to each of us. It is my hope that we would be nourished in and through our prayer life, our Sunday and weekday Liturgies, so that each of us takes to heart the words, “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord and one another.” May we see ourselves as a link that helps foster spiritual and compassionate care and comfort to those unable to be physically present at Sunday Liturgy.
It is inspiring to know that on a weekly basis so many Eucharistic Ministers are bringing Holy Communion to residents in our local hospital, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We invite you as parishioners to extend in any way our ministry of caring by suggesting parishioners from your own family or neighborhood that we might serve.

Please feel free to contact me at the parish office at 201.444.2000 x404, on my cell at 201.390.4041 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Leave your contact information and I’ll be happy to get back to you.
In thanksgiving for God’s many blessings,
Sister Mary
