About

Our Lady of Mount Carmel (OLMC) is a Roman Catholic Church located in Newport News, VA off Harpersville Road. We are a parish of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. OLMC was founded in 1953 by the Carmelite Fathers, and they served this parish until 1990 when the diocese was asked to provide priests. Our history includes three particular religious charisms that help make us who we are today. The Carmelites, the Dominicans, who have been teaching at our school since its inception in 1954, and the Poor Clares, who, until recently lived just down the road from our parish. We hope that you will find our parish to be a vibrant community and that you will join our parish in our mission to find Christ here and bring Christ to the world!
