Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church will reopen its doors Nov. 27 — a milestone some congregants feared would never come, and that parish officials say was only possible after extensive and costly repairs to an unsafe building.  With repairs complete, “it’s on to God’s work of repairing hearts,” the Rev. Amilcar Benito Prado — popularly known as “Father Benny” — told Montclair Local in an email Tuesday. 

The church, on Pine Street between Claremont and Glenridge avenues, will celebrate Mass at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27, he said. The weekend marks the first Sunday of Advent. Weekend Masses will continue from there. The news follows what Prado said was extensive work to OLMC.
