Children/Youth Faith Formation

OLMC’s Children’s and Youth Ministry

Children’s and Youth Ministry at OLMC promotes and reinforces faith by focusing on spiritual, educational and family life development. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church provides religious education instruction and faith formation for children in grades 1-12. We offer a complete program for families with children. Our program will help nurture your family’s Catholic life by addressing spiritual growth, community building and living a “sacramental” life, a life based on love. We welcome all families to our parish family, especially newcomers. Please “come and see” what our Lord has to offer to you and your children at our parish.
… Jesus called for the children, saying: “let the little children come to me. Do not shut them off. The reign of God belongs to such as these. Trust me when I tell you that whoever does not accept the kingdom of God as a child will not enter into it.” Luke18:16-17.

Parents and children, we invite you to share our parish life! For more information or registration materials, please call our Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry, John Bruscia at (949) 673-2719 or email
