Help Us prevent our Parish Church from being demolished and our parish community from being merged with another across the City.  We need your help and fast. Within one day notice to close the locks of the Church were changed. We need funding to quickly organize and power our fight to FIX the CHURCH and SAVE the PARISH.  We are a Roman Catholic Parish located in Worcester Massachusetts on Mulbury Street. Our Parish is over 100 years old. For generations we have been the epicenter for Community, Youth, Italian American Culture, and Religious activities. At Our Lady of Mount Carmel you will find well attended masses, and exciting catechism programming, CCD in action, Italian Cultural education programs, Language classes, Book clubs, Senior Clubs and Societies, Art Gallery, and coffee shop. We are an Anchor to the Restaurant District and a gateway to a developing downtown in the second largest city in New England.

Our Church building needs structural work from damages caused by a State Highway that was imposed too close to our building. After many years this expedited the wear and tear upon the building. Our Pastor and Bishop have closed the Church with less than 24 hours notice and they want to merge our parish with another on the other side of our City. We parishioners are dedicated to preserving both the Church and the Parish. Today we are working to save it and restore it to it’s former beauty. Join us as we “FIX THE CHURCH AND SAVE THE PARISH” we have formed a SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL. We sincerely hope you will join us. We can not do this without YOUR help.

May Our Lady of Mount Carmel Bless us ALL +

Why would we have been so powerless to have prevented the State from dishonoring our Church .Rt 495 from the Bourne Bridge had to make a very wide circle around a farm because the farm owner was powerful enough to have her demand TO DO SO RESPECTED.
