The CCD Program of St. Charles Parish seeks to work with parents of elementary age students (grades K-8) promoting knowledge of faith, liturgical education, and moral formation. Through prayerful experiences, community atmosphere, and missionary spirit, we attempt to help every child build an intimate relationship with God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in conjunction with the Catholic Church.

Classes begin:

Sundays 10:00 - 10:55 a.m.  September 8, 2019 - April 26, 2020 Cafeteria

 

Special Buddies are a part of the CCD Program that attends to students with special needs. It is essential that all forms of the liturgy be completely accessible to persons with disabilities, since these forms are the essence of the spiritual tie that binds our Christian community together. Realistic provisions are made for Catholics with disabilities to participate fully in the Eucharist and other liturgical celebrations. For more information call Religious Education Office.

CCD Catechists and Volunteers are people who regularly teach, aid, and/or help in the office during CCD each Sunday. Catechesis is the act of bringing the Church’s teachings to the world and these volunteers, by virtue of their Baptism, pass on their faith and are witness to the Gospel.
