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.
