RCIA-Encounter is a teen program at Our Lady of Mt Carmel designed for individuals who have already received the sacrament of baptism (baptismal certificate required) and are seeking to receive First Communion and/or Confirmation in the Catholic Church. This is a two-year process at Our Lady of Mt Carmel.

The students meet every Monday night, 7:00 pm- 8:15pm, during the school year.

The RCIA-Encounter program follows many of the Confirmation Program guidelines.

The students are expected to: 

*Attend and participate in every class.                                              *Attend Sunday Mass.                                                                  *Engage in service projects at the parish and in the community.          *Engage in spiritual exercises outside of class.                                  *Select a Saint name and write a brief report.                                    *Secure a sponsor.   

If all requirements are met, RCIA-Encounter students will receive Confirmation with the 8th grade Confirmation students.
