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. Classes begin Monday, October 1st and are held most Mondays, October through April from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m.  We encourage all children who do not attend Catholic grade schools to attend weekly CCD classes.

Our CCD classes are deigned to support your efforts to share your faith.
*Family faith activities will periodically occur throughout the year.  We celebrate Reconciliation together, gathered for the Living Rosary, walk the Stations of the Cross together, and take part in a beautiful May Crowning ceremony.
*Large group prayer and craft activities are scheduled periodically enabling students from all grade levels to pray and work together.
*Much effort is being made to supplement class instruction with games, activities, and service projects to inspire a lifelong commitment to the faith.
*Participation in the CCD Program prepares your children for the reception of the Sacraments.  There is a 2 year curriculum for First Reconciliation and First Communion and a 2 year Confirmation Program.

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 2020 begins in October of 2018.  Confirmation requires 2 years of preparation.  All children enrolled in the 6th and 7th grades of the CCD Program for 2018-2019 will being the preparation for Confirmation this fall.
