We, the family of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Herrin, Illinois, are a parish that celebrates our faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that we are the hands and feet of Christ on earth. We are in Communion with the “Catholic” Church throughout the world.
We are a community that celebrates our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament. We strive to share our faith with our children and our young people through our traditions and our school.
We seek to be a welcoming and caring parish family in our actions, prayer, and liturgies. We encourage the gifts of all our members, young and old, and try to build the kingdom of God in our region and world.
