Class instruction for teens who have completed the 8th grade is offered during the academic year part of our Monday afternoon CCD program. In addition to the weekly classes, students are expected to participate in a day retreat at Mt. Angel, complete Caritas Credits (service hours), submit homework in a timely manner and write two essays. More information, including registration materials, a syllabus, and a September-May class calendar, can be found here.
Our text is The Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Rite of Confirmation is celebrated in September, following the previous year’s instruction. Although primarily designed for freshmen, sophomores and juniors in high school are also welcome to enroll. Adults interested in Confirmation are encouraged to call the parish office.
