CCD Calendar

Religious Education age 4 – grade 7

Thank you for making religious education a priority in your family. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, ‘parents are by ‘word and example…’ the first heralds of the faith with regard to their children.”  CCC 1656.  As church, we are here to support you as your child grows in wisdom, age and grace.

We are very excited this year as we revamp and combine our programs.   Our religious education program is for children age 4 up to grade 7.  Our sessions will take place the second and fourth Sundays of the month at St. Rita from 10:30 – 11:45 AM followed by Mass. Our plan is to have the children take leadership roles within the Mass.  Parents are asked to attend Mass and dismissal will be after Mass.  There will also be many opportunities for family activities during and after CCD.   We welcome participation from every family member! Our schedule is:

September 8 – CCD Kick off Session & after Mass lunch to celebrate Mary’s Birthday.

September 22 – Regular CCD Session
