Service – Works of Mercy

The community of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School responds to the Christian call to care for those in need and give to others through selfless acts of service. We encourage students, parents, faculty and staff to give of their time, to serve the community and become a united voice of action. Service opportunities are a valued part of our school curriculum and occur throughout the year.
