Religious Education

2017

CCD CLASSES will begin this year with a  celebration of  our catechists at 9:15 a.m. Mass on Sunday, September 17, for all students K-8. The catechists of the Parish will be recognized and commissioned. Following Mass, please join them for a reception in the cafeteria. Come and meet your child’s teacher and thank them in advance for all they will do for your child over the year. Regular classes will begin the following weekend,  September 23-24.

 

 

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.
