Our Lady of Mount Carmel Confirmation Preparation Calendar 2019-2020
Families are responsible for helping their child(ren) attend class on a regular basis to ensure continuity of lessons. It is the responsibility of parents to share the Catholic faith with their children by attending Mass on Sunday (when not in session) and Holy Days of Obligation. Receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist regularly is strongly encouraged.
CLASSES ARE SCHEDULED FOR THE FOLLOWING DATES
All Student sessions are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Unless otherwise noted. Candidates will attend Mass as well as participate in activities during this time. So weekly Mass attendance on Saturday night or Sunday morning is not obligated. Parents are welcome to Mass, which tentatively begins from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
