We find Christ Here...We Bring Christ to the World. Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Newport News Va.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Mt 28.19-20)
Through our Sacramental Preparation, parents seeking Baptism, First Penance (Reconciliation) and/or First Holy Communion for their children prepare for their role by deepening their own faith and establishing family faith practices to encourage the spiritual growth of their children. Parents join with other families in the parish community to strengthen their ability to pass on the faith and receive ongoing support of Catholic home life.
