CCD

Our elementary program is for children in grades 1-6. It is designed specifically for children who are not currently attending Catholic schools. Children experience a variety of opportunities to learn and grow in their faith. Lessons are given using workbooks that follow a sequence that parallels the development of the child, integrating Catholic theology based on scripture and tradition in the Church. We invite you and your child to be a part of our community by celebrating in parish activities and liturgies offered throughout the year. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30 p.m. during the school year. (Annual registration is required.) CCD classes will resume on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.

Our Junior and Senior High program are offered for children in grades 7-11. Classes at this level challenge young people to explore and reflect on their Catholic Faith. The program is designed to help students to grow in knowledge and understanding of Catholic theology, resulting in a deepening of their faith. Classes are specifically designed for children who are not currently attending Catholic schools. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 p.m. during the school year. (Annual registration is required.) CCD classes will resume on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.

Liturgy of the Word for children (usually ages 5-9) takes place during the 11:00 a.m. Masses on most Sundays during the school year. During each Mass, following a blessing by the presiding priest, children are invited to listen to the Gospel in a separate space, and then rejoin their families for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. The purpose of this ministry is to present the Gospel to children in a way that is meaningful to them, and provide them with a greater awareness and knowledge of scripture. No registration is required, and all children are invited to attend.
