Time to Say Goodbye

07-29-2018The Sisters CornerSr. Veronica

Dear OLMC Family,

The time has come for me to say goodbye!! I will keep in my heart everything that God allowed me to live here. I truly believe in the perfection of God’s Will, and I can say for sure He wanted me here to see the blessings of His Plan for the community and for the Parish-School family.


Happy Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel!

07-15-2018The Sisters Corner

Tomorrow is a great feast for all the Church and especially for us, as a parish. Tomorrow we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, it is a day to remember her and celebrate her constant presence in our lives.

It is not a coincidence that our Parish has her name... Have you thought about that?


God Bless America!

07-08-2018The Sisters Corner

We have recently celebrated the 4th of July. For most of us, it is only the second time to celebrate this holiday as we are new to your country, culture, and traditions which through the mission God has given us, has become our own. 

The country and mission was, and is still, very new for us, the culture and language are different from our countries but your warm welcome and your many gestures of love and kindness have made us experience the beauty of this country and thus loving it more. 


Helping spread the prolife message

07-01-2018The Sisters Corner

As many of you know, back in Peru we have a Musical Ministry called “Siervas” which evangelizes  by bringing the Christian messages to our youth and those who fall far from faith through pop-rock music.

We recently released a new song with a strong prolife message in the annual March for Life which takes place every year in the city of Lima.  It is the largest of this type of gathering in South America.


A Note from Sr. Maria Jose!

A Special Note...

06-03-2018The Sisters CornerSr. María Alejandra

Dear OLMC Parish Family,

I can't believe it has been almost 2 years since I arrived here in Arizona. I've known you for a short time but it seems as if it's been a lifetime. God blessed me with the opportunity to see our beloved Pam and Alpha depart to our Father's House. Then I was blessed again to see the miracle of life with all your new babies.  I believe God is the one who wanted to me participate in the life of this Parish, and I did deeply!!!!! With each one of you.


Meet Sr. Monica

05-27-2018The Sisters Corner

Hi! I am Sister Monica and I am very happy to share with you that I moved to Tempe last week to join my sisters in their mission here. It is a real blessing for me to be able to serve in Our Lady of Mount Carmel and I am very much looking forward to meeting all of you. Everyone I have met so far has been very welcoming and I already feel very much at home!


Mary, our Mother

05-06-2018The Sisters Corner

We are entering the month of  May and in many countries throughout the world,  we celebrate the memory of Our Lady with special devotions. Some countries in South America, for example in Chile, the schools and some companies all the activities are halted. Time is scheduled to gather all together, dedicated to  honoring our Mother with special prayers. In Peru, Ecuador and other countries, where some of us are from, we have big processions in the streets and people sing beautiful songs with a lot of love and emotion with a very special and strong devotion to her.


Our Hope is Here

04-28-2018The Sisters Corner

Easter is a time of hope. The light of Christ’s Resurrection has overcome all darkness. So, what is hope?

Hope is theological virtue; a gift bestowed by God through which one trusts God will grant us eternal life. Our hope is deposited in God’s promises to take us to heaven. This very hope brings us joy, a joy so deep that no one can take it away.  Our work is to never lose this hope and to let it shine through us.


A Note from Sr. Maria Cristina

04-22-2018The Sisters Corner

The Divine Mercy Sunday is a beautiful celebration in the Church, rooted in God’s wonderful love for all of  humanity. 

After praying and discerning about how to celebrate on a deeper level for this feast in our Church, we (my team and I ) decided to host a Divine Mercy Celebration open to all the children of the parish so as to spread God’s merciful love to all. 


New people coming into the Church!

04-15-2018The Sisters CornerSr. Maria Jose

It has been such a wonderful blessing for me to witness the ways God has been present and working in the lives of all the RCIA participants during this past year. Some of the many amazing graces have been witnessing as they were getting baptized, receiving Confirmation and First Holy Communion, then fully belonging to the Catholic Church.


Happy Sunday of the Divine Mercy!

04-08-2018The Sisters Corner

Today is a great day to remember God's Mercy for all the Church. God invites us; through Sister Faustina, the story of the Church and throughout the Story of Salvation, to open our hearts to His Merciful love for all of humankind.

In our charism as Servants of the Plan of God, it's very important to us that we have present in our lives the Mercy of God. We have a devotion to the Master of Mercy. It's an image of the Child Jesus that from his chest he takes his own heart to give it to us freely. When you look at His child face, He's with a smile, showing us that He is happy to do it. When we see a child we can't help but to receive the love from the child. That's why He wants us to perceive Him as a little child.


Happy Easter! Christ is risen!

04-01-2018The Sisters Corner

During this Lenten time, we have experienced God's love and grace in our hearts working differently both individually and as a community. We also experienced, through our different ministries, the grace of God’s work in those we serve as part of the parish and school.
