The Mount Carmel Parish has been blessed with a fair number of men and women
who have answered God’s call to the dedicated life in the priesthood and
religious life. The names are listed below. Father Joseph Finnegan was not a
member of Mount Carmel when ordained, but was baptized at Mount Carmel. The
Finnegan family had moved to Carroll sometime before he was ordained. All of
the vocations to the priesthood have been to the Diocese of Sioux City. Two men
have become Brothers of the Holy Cross.
