Confirmation Calendar

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Confirmation Preparation Calendar

Families are responsible for helping their child(ren) attend class on a regular basis to ensure continuity of lessons, and it is the responsibility of parents to share the Catholic faith with their children by attending Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation. Receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist regularly is strongly encouraged.


All Student sessions are Sundays, 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Unless otherwise noted. Candidates will attend class in the cafeteria, please enter the Academy main entrance(south parking lot, Clinton Avenue side.)

Working in small groups.
