Register for CCD Classes/Sacramental Prep (2020-2021) Register Here Classes start October 5, 2020! Options for In-Person or Online Classes! CCD stands for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, or more simply Catholic religious education for children. Through attending CCD classes, children learn about the Catholic faith as they study scripture, prayer, Catholic doctrine, and Catholic traditions. CCD also prepares students for the reception of Sacraments. We encourage all children who do not attend Catholic grade schools to attend weekly CCD classes. Due to the unique pandemic situation in our world and recognizing that not all families will be comfortable with an in person option, Christ the King will offer in person and online learning for our CCD program for the upcoming school year only. Traditional Program: Additional health and safety precautions will be taken including temperature checks of all staff and students, hand and room sanitization and mask usage. When CCD Classes are held on Mondays from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m. (Grade 1 – 8)This year we will also offer CCD on Thursdays from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. (gr. 1 – 4 only) *Calendar 2020-2021* Homeschool/online program: Materials and online resources will be provided for children enrolled in our online option. There will be a few ZOOM Meetings scheduled for the children to attend – dates TBA. More details will be sent out within a few weeks. New Safe Practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19: During the 2020-2021 School year we will be reducing our class size to 12 or less children to ensure social distancing. We will also be implementing new procedures for sanitizing our materials, encouraging hand washing/hand sanitizing after every work station/activity, and all catechists will wear masks. We welcome children to also wear masks if they are developmentally ready to do so. Sacramental Prep – Important: ***First Communion is usually received when a child is in the second grade. Children must be enrolled in CCD Classes for both 1st and 2nd grade in order to be adequately prepared for First Communion in May of their 2nd grade year. ***Confirmation preparation for the class that will be Confirmed in 2022 begins in October of 2020. Confirmation requires 2 years of preparation. All children enrolled in the 6th – 8th grades of the CCD Program for 2020-2021 will begin the preparation for Confirmation.
