"Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, a community in the Whitman/Pennsport

sections of the City of Philadelphia, seeks to live in the way, truth and

life of Jesus Christ. With the same gratitude born from the faith and

courage of Mary our Mother we strive to build community with healing, hope,

tolerance and forgiveness. Through our sacramental, educational and social

ministries we seek to deepen our awareness as followers of Jesus; being a

people filled with compassion who regard the dying, the poor and those most

in need as the sign of Christ among us. We strive to improve the quality of

life for all our neighbors regardless of nationality or belief, and we

commit to seek out effective ministries to our youth and young adults who

are the future of our parish. We pray for the guidance and protection of

the Holy Spirit that we may all be counted among the saints when they go

marching into paradise."
