Archbishop Annual Appeal 2021

The 2021 Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties – namely to proclaim the gospel, to pass on the faith to future generations, particularly through the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and those on the margins.

Now more than ever, especially during this health crisis, our ministries, and programs need your support.

Will you prayerfully consider making a gift to the 2021 Annual Appeal?

We Are Live !!!

As Catholics, we believe that God comes down to meet us at every Mass. At this difficult time, when the circumstances don’t allow us to come together as a community, remember He will come to us wherever we are and whenever we seek Him.  Every Sunday presents the opportunity to invite Him into our home by participating in one of the live-streamed English mass at 11 am and Spanish mass at 1 pm or recorded Masses. For most of us, this is a new experience and will take time to learn.

Here are tips to help you prepare for and fully participate in a virtual Mass:

Before Mass Begins:

  1. Find a quiet place at home to set up your computer. We want to set the stage for prayer and reflection.
  2. Dress appropriately. This helps show reverence and an understanding of the importance of the moment.
  3. Be on time. Joining the live stream early will allow you to pray and prepare yourself better for Mass.

During Mass:

  1. Participate in the Mass. Make the appropriate responses and follow the readings.
  2. No Food and Drinks. Just as we don’t eat or drink in Church, the same stands for a virtual Mass.
  3. Turn off cell phones or other devices. Distractions are not conducive to prayer.
  4. Do not talk to others in your home during the Mass. Make this a time to visit with God, and visit with one another later.
  5. Participate in communion by reciting An Act of Spiritual Communion

    My Jesus,

    I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
    I love You above all things,
    and I desire to receive You into my soul.
    Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
    come at least spiritually into my heart.
    I embrace You as if You were already there
    and unite myself wholly to You.
    Never permit me to be separated from You.

After Mass:

  1. Pray after Mass. If you feel called, offer a prayer of thanksgiving after Mass is over.
  2. Make your Sunday Offertory online or by mail. During times like these, your regular Sunday Offertory is extremely important for us to continue the same programs and ministries when things return to normal.
  3. Go in peace to love and serve the Lord!

Join our weekly celebration of the Holy Eucharist from home. Below are the links to our Facebook page to view the live English mass on Sunday at 11 am and Spanish mass at 1 pm on Sundays and our Youtube link to view recorded masses.



We Need Your Help !!!

 Dear Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parishioners,

I am writing to ask your support for an Archdiocese-wide initiative that Cardinal Tobin has launched to support our parish community, outreach to those in need, and parishes in response to the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on everyday life.

We are partnering with the team at GoFundMe, a leading online giving organization, to provide one online platform for the faithful to support outreach to those most in need as well as cover the critical needs of their own and other parish communities during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This is a coordinated and unified effort.  The first-place people often go in time of need is the local parish. Under the current conditions brought on by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, parishes are limited in the services they can offer to the faithful.

Cardinal Tobin has temporarily waived the usual archdiocesan assessment in support of this initiative.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to our parish. Visit our parish GoFundMe page: Go to our Facebook Page: Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church Jersey City. 

Or put the following link on your browser:   utm_campaign=ocdonate&utm_medium=email&utm_source=crowdrise&modified=1

The funding flow for this initiative offers both simplicity and transparency for our parish community and others who choose to contribute:

  • All money raised through individual parish GoFundMe pages will flow into a central archdiocesan fund, and the Parish Business Services team will aim to release all funds to parishes in the amount raised for the parish within the week
  • Pastors, parishioners, and the public can track how much each parish has raised in total on their individual parish GoFundMe pages
  • All money raised through the Parishes in Need fund will be distributed to conduct outreach to those in need and to those parish communities unable to meet their critical needs alone
  • Contributions are tax-deductible, and contributors will receive tax receipts automatically

You may also continue to give through your typical methods if you prefer:

  • For those who would like to continue to give through envelopes or cash during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, please: you may drop your envelope at the rectory mailbox slot.
  • For those who give through our existing online giving platform, you may continue to do so at: “Parish Giving” which can be found at our Parish Website this option is found at the very bottom of the website, after scrolling up. Please click on it and then you can begin registering there to continue your generous contribution towards the parish.
  • Please also remember the Annual Appeal among your options for contributing

[Our parish will have a live-streamed celebration of Mass this Sunday  at 11:00 am In English and 1:00 pm in Spanish Https://

Querida Feligresía de Nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo,

Le escribo para pedirle su apoyo para una iniciativa de toda la Arquidiócesis que el Cardenal Tobin ha lanzado para apoyar a nuestra comunidad parroquial, llegar a los necesitados y parroquias en respuesta a los efectos de la pandemia del Coronavirus (COVID-19) en la vida cotidiana.

Nos estamos asociando con el equipo de GoFundMe, una organización líder de donaciones en línea, para proporcionar una plataforma en línea para que los fieles apoyen la divulgación a los más necesitados y cubran las necesidades críticas de sus propias comunidades parroquiales durante el Coronavirus (COVID) -19) pandemia. Este es un esfuerzo coordinado y unificado. El primer lugar donde la gente suele ir en tiempo de necesidad es la parroquia local. Bajo las condiciones actuales provocadas por la pandemia de Coronavirus (COVID-19), las parroquias están limitadas en los servicios que pueden ofrecer a los fieles.

El cardenal Tobin ha renunciado temporalmente a la evaluación Arquidiocesana habitual en apoyo de esta iniciativa.

Por favor considere hacer una contribución deducible de impuestos a nuestra parroquia. Visite nuestra página GoFundMe de la parroquia: vaya a nuestra página de Facebook:  Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church Jersey City.

O ponga el siguiente enlace en su navegador: utm_campaign = ocdonate & utm_medium = email & utm_source = crowdrise & modified = 1

El flujo de fondos para esta iniciativa ofrece simplicidad y transparencia para nuestra comunidad parroquial y otras personas que eligen contribuir:

  • Todo el dinero recaudado a través de las páginas de GoFundMe de la parroquia fluirá a un fondo arquidiocesano central, y el equipo de Servicios Comerciales de la Parroquia tendrá como objetivo liberar todos los fondos a las parroquias por el monto recaudado para la parroquia dentro de la semana
  • Los pastores, feligreses y el público pueden hacer un seguimiento de cuánto ha recaudado cada parroquia en total en sus páginas GoFundMe parroquiales individuales.
  • Todo el dinero recaudado a través del fondo Parroquias necesitadas se distribuirá para llevar a cabo actividades de divulgación entre los necesitados y las comunidades parroquiales que no puedan satisfacer sus necesidades críticas por sí solos
  • Las contribuciones son deducibles de impuestos, y los contribuyentes recibirán recibos de impuestos automáticamente

También puede continuar dando a través de sus métodos típicos si prefiere:

  • Para aquellos que deseen continuar entregando sobres o efectivo durante la pandemia de Coronavirus (COVID-19), por favor: pueden dejar su sobre en la ranura del buzón de la “Rectoría” (casa curar) al lado izquierdo de la iglesia.
  • [Para aquellos que donan a través de nuestra plataforma de donaciones en línea existente, puede continuar haciéndolo en: (inserte el enlace a la plataforma de donaciones en línea existente)] el cual aparece en nuestra pagina de internet y va donde dice “Parish Giving” se registra ahí y ahí también podrías depositar fondos para la parroquia.
  • Recuerde también la Apelación anual entre sus opciones para contribuir

[Nuestra parroquia tendrá una celebración de misa en vivo este Domingo todos los Domingos a las 11:00 am en inglés y 1:00 pm en español Https://


Puede acceder a la transmisión en vivo en el siguiente enlace: Https://

Gracias por la generosidad con nuestra parroquia y con aquellas comunidades parroquiales que no pueden satisfacer sus necesidades críticas por sí solas.
