Ministries Non-affiliated with OLMC
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ Centered 12 step group where it is understood your higher power is Jesus Christ. Anyone struggling with hurts, habits and hang ups is invited to join. Many people come because they know someone who needs help and stay because they find a community of people who care and understand their struggles.
Celebrate Recovery follows the Christ-Centered 12 steps combined with the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes. During Covid we meet virtually on Sundays at 7pm. Please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6pm on Sunday to be included in the zoom invite. We will go back to in person meetings as soon as possible.
Full Circle (Youth at Risk)
A ministry serving families with teens/young adults struggling with a range of issues that can challenge the very foundation of any household. Issues may include substance abuse, addictions such as (but not limited to) gambling or pornography, depression, promiscuity, or eating disorders. This list is by no means exhaustive, and is not meant to be exclusive. If you or someone you love is in pain, or just have questions about a particular matter, we here at Mt. Carmel would like to help. Often conventional help, be it advice, therapy, or rehabilitation, while well intentioned, allows young people to slip through the cracks. Our aim is to provide a program that provides families with support, responds to individual needs, affirms your strengths, and, above all, a program that will serve as a safety net so that our children will not fall through the cracks.

St. Vincent de Paul
The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church in Tempe is part of the largest lay Catholic charitable organization in the world. We are committed to serving people in our community who find themselves in a difficult situation. Visiting them in their homes, we assess their individual needs and provide emergency food boxes, help pay rent and utility bills, offer clothes and furniture vouchers, and refer them to other organizations. Our assistance encompasses the whole person, addressing not only material but also spiritual needs.
