About the Parish

The Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel dates back about forty years, and has always been considered a National Hispanic Parish. Parishioners are predominantly of Hispanic background, particularly Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican and Ecuadorian. Masses, Weddings and Baptisms are conducted in Spanish. The priests, however, are bilingual and offer spiritual direction in English and Spanish.

About 3,000 families worship in the parish, and hundreds of children take part in Catechism, along with First Communion and Confirmation. Each year, about 600 children are baptized in the parish.

The priests visit and care for the sick personally, and offer the Sacraments of Anointing of the Sick, Confession and Communion whenever needed.

The Society of Jesus Christ, The Priest

All of the priests of the parish are members of the Society of Jesus Christ, The Priest, which was founded in 1957 by Rev. Alfonso Gálvez in Spain. The Society was approved as a Pious Union in 1980, and as an Association of Christian Faithful in 1986.

The Society includes priests, laymen and laywomen and has members in Spain, the United States, Ecuador and Chile. Its members are active in parish life as pastors, assistant pastors, teachers and CCD instructors, and devote themselves as well to a broad range of spiritual and educational activities. Following the precept and example of its founder, the Society places a special emphasis upon working with young people.

In 1991, the Society founded the Shoreless Lake School to make available to young people an integral and total formation based in Catholic values and tradition.
