Religious Education

Merry Christmas!

 

CCD NEWS: We have had a fabulous Fall! The students are learning their prayers, learning about the Bible and learning  how much Jesus loves them, just as they are. There is much more to come in the Spring. In February, we will be starting a parent social on the first Saturday of the month during CCD.

 

We also have First Reconciliation on January 19, Confirmation on May 3, and First Communion on May 6. Please keep the 2nd and 8th grade students and their teachers in your prayers.

 

Thank you to the teachers, substitutes and volunteers. You are a true example of God’s love!

Thank you also to the parents for supporting all the teachers do in the classroom.

 

FAMILY  MINISTRY:       We have a couples’ night scheduled for January  28, and we will have an Easter Egg

Hunt in April.  I am looking for suggestions for activities and people who would like to help.

 

I wish you all a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year!

Jamie Connelly, CCD and Family Ministry Coordinator

 

 

What is CCD?

 

 

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine was an association established at Rome in 1562 for the purpose of providing religious education.  Today CCD  refers to a religious education program of the Catholic Church, normally designed for children.

Saints Peter and Paul’s CCD Program

It is our belief that parents are the primary catechists for their children.  It is our goal to assist parents along this journey of faith by providing sacramental preparation, a faith-filled learning environment and opportunities to serve God and others.  We hope to help parents nurture in their children a love for God and others and demonstrate to the children the richness and beauty of our faith.

Saints Peter and Paul Students who attend public school receive their Faith Formation through our parish CCD program which consists of class study and preparation for the reception of the sacraments. The goal of the parish CCD program is to enable and encourage the students to learn more about their faith.

SCHEDULE:  We offer Religious Education for Kindergarten through 8th grade from mid-September through the last week in April.

Students in Grades K-6 attend CCD Class on Saturday morning from 9:00 AM until 10:00 AM.  Students in Grades 7-8 attend CCD Class on Sunday morning from 10:30 AM untuil 12:00 PM.
