Serving Christ in the Ones Who are Most in Need

08-26-2018The Sisters Corner

Our charism and mission as Servants of the Plan of God is to serve and announce God to everybody, especially to those who are most in need, those who suffer, who are poor, sick, and in every kind of need.


Everyday Stewardship


In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus continues His instruction on the Eucharist. Many of his own disciples cannot accept His teachings and instead return to their former way of life, abandoning Christ altogether. Jesus turns to the Apostles and asks them to choose with the question, “Do you also want to leave?” Peter speaks up for the Twelve responding, “Master, to Whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”


Teaching in the School!

08-19-2018The Sisters CornerSister Stephanie

This is my second year teaching at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School as a Spanish Teacher for Junior High Students. It’s been a blessing be with God’s little sons and daughters for me and the sisters that I have taught at OLMC. Spanish is my first language, I love teaching Spanish and to be able to assist the children with having their minds opened to other countries, cultures and different realities as the Hispanic countries.


Our 20th Anniversary!

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 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.
