Children’s Religious Education (CCD) classes are held Sundays 10:15 – 11:30am from mid-September through early-May in the Parish School.  Led by caring and trained volunteers, children experience Christ’s love for them and the Church through Bible teaching, prayer, living the life of discipleship, and encountering God through live-giving sacraments.

2017-18 Registration for Grades 1 through 8

Religious Education classes will begin on September 10. Parents, students and catechists will meet at 10:15 in the south cafeteria of the school. After introductions, prayer and announcements, children will proceed to the classrooms with their catechists. Parents are asked to stay for a brief parent meeting, where we will go over the calendar for the year, drop-off and pick-up procedures and other pertinent information. Children will be dismissed from class at 11:30 from the south cafeteria doors.

The registration fee is $45 for the first child and $10 for each additional child enrolled. Payment can be made on Sept. 11, following the parent meeting, or can be sent to the parish office:
