The religious formation program of Mount Carmel High School is one
which extends beyond the limits of the classroom. It is within this faith
community that students learn to express the basic values of our Catholic
Christian tradition. For the graduate of Mount Carmel to be aware of his
Christian life, he must experience the virtue of living a Christian life during
his four years of study.
The Campus Minstry office oversees the following:
- Liturgies -- Masses, prayer services and other opportunities for sacramental experiences.
- Pastoral Counseling -- Providing spiritual guidance to the Mount Carmel community.
- Retreat Program -- Creating challenging and prayerful experiences for students across all four years.
- Senior Leadership -- Helping senior students to accept the challenge of leading a Christian life by example and deed
The goal of the retreat program is to help students to be more aware of their Christian life and to guide and help students experience the virtue of living a Christian life inside and outside of Mount Carmel.
