Catholic Schools Week

01-29-2023Weekly ReflectionFr Charlie Goraieb

Dear OLMC Community,

This week is Catholic Schools Week- a week where we celebrate Catholic schools, specifically, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and all the wonderful things they do. OLMC has always been a special place of faith, community and strong academics, preparing our students for their future. OLMC recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children. Parents develop their children's attitudes, values, and moral integrity. The role of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is to provide a Catholic Christian environment that nurtures and develops the soul, mind, and body of each child. Within this environment, religious traditions are celebrated, intellectual skills and critical thinking are developed, and students are prepared to live in and become vital contributors to a changing society. OLMC recognizes and appreciates each individual's significance as a member of a family, parish, and community. With love, respect, and support, every child learns and grows. Our students learn how to live their faith and in that process, they are developing a deeper relationship with Jesus and learning to prepare for Heaven.

Catholic Schools Week is a time to celebrate all the things that make our school great:

- Our staff, who prepare the students as Catholic role models with lessons far more powerful than anything in a textbook.
- Our students, as they let the light of Christ shine through them, they prepare to be future leaders in our society.
- Our families, who together form the school community with the shared goal of helping our students thrive on their paths.
- Our parish, which provides the anchor for the faith of our spiritual community.
We are blessed to be a part of this school and its vibrant community! We invite you to join us for our Open House on February 5th. Our campus will be open for tours from 10:00am-12:30pm.
