Infant Baptism is celebrated for children under the age of seven.
Requirements for infant baptism at the Mission are that your family be current parishioners here at the Mission, be alumni of Junipero Serra School, or have celebrated the sacrament of Holy Matrimony here.
Carmel Mission’s Faith Formation classes are held from 10:30-11:30 on Sunday—immediately following the Children’s Mass. The classes are held for children in kindergarten through grade 8 throughout the academic year. The curriculum is based on the major themes of the Catholic faith balanced in the areas of scripture, prayer and worship, Catholic Doctrine, Christian living, faith-in-action, and fellowship. Most importantly, the sessions are focused on teaching and sharing the love God has for all his children.
Sacrament Programs – First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation (please link): Our parish sacrament programs engage families and the church community. Sacraments require in-home, family-centered preparation—a process that is guided and supported by the Faith Formation staff. For more information please visit the parish website for individual sacrament eligibility requirements.
