Dear OLMC Community,hermie

On October 29th, the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is hosting a vocations fair for the Diocese of Phoenix. A flyer for the event is included in this week’s newsletter.

On October 26th and 27th, the school will be participating in activities in honor of the Our Lady of Fatima Statue being at the Church. A special Rosary session will be held on the 26th at 2:00 p.m. Our school mass will take place on Friday the 27th that week, and there will be no mass on Wednesday. Please make sure students are in mass dress on the 27th.

Conference slips were sent home with the students on Friday. Please make sure to fill these out and return them to school no later than October 18th. Conferences will take place November 1st-3rd.

I want to wish all of our families a safe and enjoyable long weekend. We look forward to welcoming the students back to campus next Wednesday for the start of second quarter.
