Our Services

What are services like?
Worship is a time of fellowship, celebration and learning. Each Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel centers around the Eucharist and presentation of God's Word. Our Pastor is Fr. Leonard who shares the life-changing message of God's Word in a clear, practical and relevant way. Our worship has elements of music, creative arts and technology also used to communicate and inspire. Depending on the Mass you attend, you will see a choir, folk ensemble, youth choir, or a mix. During times of congregational singing, a cantor comes to the front of church to lead. Throughout the service, you are welcome to join in or sit back and observe; however you feel most comfortable. The dress is casual and varied so come as you are.
