Novena of Our Lady
of Mount Carmel2020


Dear Friends 

Please join us in the Novena in honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. 

The recitation of the rosary begins at 5:00pm, EST

July 8th - July 16th, 2020


We deeply regret that we will not be able to hold our public preached novena by Father Dan Bedel this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions on church assemblies.  However, we will be praying the novena prayer each day during Mass, recite the rosary after Vespers, sing the novena hymn, and offering all your intentions to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. 


Carmelites have chosen Mary as their Patroness and spiritual Mother and always keep before the eyes of their heart the Most Pure Virgin who guides everyone to the perfect knowledge and imitation of Christ.

Thus, an intimacy of spiritual relations has blossomed, leading to an ever-increasing communion with Christ and Mary. For the members of the Carmelite Family, Mary, the Virgin Mother of God and mankind, is not only a model to imitate but also the sweet presence of a Mother and Sister in whom to confide. St Teresa of Jesus rightly urged her sisters:  "Imitate Our Lady and consider how great she must be and what a good thing it is that we have her for our Patroness".

St. John Paul II



O Most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, 
Fruitful Vine, Splendor of heaven,
Blessed Mother of the Son of God,
Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity.
O Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of heaven and earth,
I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart

There are none that can withstand your power!
O help me and show me herein that you are my Mother.

Our Lady, Queen & Beauty of Carmel,

Sweet Mother, I place this cause
