The Parish of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Cebu City is relatively new. It was canonically erected on January 1, 1971 by the late Cardinal Julio Rosales. However, its foundation dates back to as early as June 1621 when the first Recollects set foot in Cebu. Bishop Arce gave them a place outside the walls of the city, with a small chapel (hermitage) dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Later on (in an undetermined date) a church was constructed in the place of the Hermitage which came to be known as the Recoletos church.
