The Mount Carmel School Chapel has been reopened with new features to ensure compliance with safety guidelines set by the COVID-19 Task Force and Mount Carmel School’s policies and procedures.
Students, faculty, and MCS community members are now welcome to use the chapel for their spiritual needs during these unprecedented times.
The initial blessing of the chapel was led by Bishop Ryan P. Jimenez of the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa in 2016.
“We must consider the chapel as the center of the sacraments and spirituality at Mount Carmel School,” said MCS campus minister Virgilio Abueme. “Due to the pandemic, how we practice our faith has changed, but we wanted to reestablish this space on campus where students and employees can turn to enrich their faith and connection with our Lord and savior.”
“I am extremely grateful for the members of our campus ministry for making the school chapel available for our community again,” said MCS president Dr. Galvin Deleon Guerrero. “While we can no longer hold Friday Masses or rosaries as an entire school body, having the school chapel available during these challenging times is essential.”
The MCS chapel is open from 7am to 4pm Monday through Friday. Masks or face shields must be worn and temperatures will be checked accordingly. (MCS)
