‘Sermon on the Mount’
CHARLOTTE--The annual celebration of the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church will take place on the top of Mount Philo on Monday,
Aug. 14. Mass will begin at 6 p.m. with a potluck to follow. There is no cost to you to drive/walk up the mountain—just tell the gate attendant that you are with
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Senior citizens with Green Mountain Passes should show them to the attendant so we are not charged for your entrance. We ask that you try and arrive early (by 5:45 p.m.) and take advantage of the shuttle service to the top (if you don’t plan walking to the top) as there is very limited parking available at the top. According to your last name you are asked to bring: A-E: desserts; F-I: drinks; J-Q: main dish; R-Z side dishes/salads (potato, macaroni, pasta, tossed, etc.) or hors d'oeuvres, chips, dips, veggie trays, etc.; the parish will supply the paper goods. In the event of rain, the Mass and potluck will be held at the church. For more information, call 425-4432.
