CCD Registration
Sep

to Sep 17

CCD Registration

Online registration begins September 11, with forms and packets available in Siena Hall after all Masses the weekend of September 9/10 and September 17 after the Sunday Masses at 7, 9, and 11 am and before the Mass at 1 pm. Sacramental year packets (blue for First Communion and red for Confirmation) will also be available at registration. 1st grade through 9/10 grade Confirmation classes are on Monday afternoons in Aquinas Hall. Although new registration and book order forms are not yet online, calendars for the 2017-18 academic year are now available on the parish website. 1st through 8th grade CCD begins September 25, and Confirmation preparation for students in high school begins the following Monday, October 2. The post-Confirmation seminar series will continue to be offered twice a month on Sunday mornings; please see the bulletin for more information on that class.

Paula Foster is returning to teach our interactive class for first graders, which also serves as important preparation for First Communion preparation in grade two. We are fortunate to once again have an impressive team of teachers, and are grateful to them for their years of dedication. We are no longer offering kindergarten, there has been some interest in an independent co-op "pre-K/Kindergarten" class. We have materials and supplies available if this project interests you. Although this would not part of our regular program, the parish can offer space in Siena Hall. As this is the same facility used for home school enrichment classes and socialization for moms and younger siblings during CCD, it might be an advantage worth considering.
