Pastor's Message

Dear Mother of Mercy Church Catholic School Parents,

On behalf of the community of The Church of Mother of Mercy, we would like to welcome your child to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School.  Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your child’s educational formation.  We congratulate you on your child’s acceptance to our wonderful school.  In our school we follow these values: We walk by faith.  We learn without end. We care for and treasure all.  We are the family of God.   I look forward to walking with your children in this beautiful journey that they are beginning with us, and being a part of their faith formation.   We are ready to offer your son/daughter many opportunities within the programs offered that will enrich his/her knowledge and faith.   Please be assured that your child will grow both in wisdom and grow into the young lady/gentleman God has created her/him to be.

As we begin this journey, my prayer is that you will join me in thanking God for the gift of education. Please join me in praying and showing our gratitude to God for the dedicated and hard working group of teachers who will not only teach but minister to your children in their education.  I ask you to also pray for our school.  We are grateful to God that our enrollment continues to increase and with your support and prayers we will continue to build more classrooms that are much needed in our school.  We trust that God is watching over our needs.  God is generous and we believe that God’s grace and spirit will inspire us to build His kingdom in His vineyard of education.   You are a vital part of your child’s education and we look forward to your presence and participation in our school!


Thank you for entrusting your child to our care and education.  I know that your child’s education and future are very important to you.  Please be assured that we will work very hard to ensure educational excellence for your child.  I am certain that you have taken the time to learn about our school and invested much time and effort to make the right choice.  During this time of discernment for the right school for your child, I hope and pray that you have personally experienced our commitment to academic thoroughness.  We believe strongly that education must complement a challenging academic program with solid Catholic spirituality.

The faculty and I are privileged and honored that you have trusted us and chosen Mt. Carmel Catholic School.  We will continue to walk with you and your children in their learning and growth.  I look forward not only to welcome you to this outstanding school, but I also look forward to meeting you personally as we continue to build community that will allow us to serve you better.


Fr. Miguel Virella SVD
