Welcome to our CREATING CATHOLIC DISCIPLES (CCD) program!
Vacation Bible School
Creating Catholic Disciples (CCD) is a program we offer for youth aged preschool through 12th grade. Your children will learn to love Jesus and our faith from you. We are here to assist you in this important endeavor. Our classes meet on Sunday after the 9:30 a.m. Mass. Our start time is 10:45 a.m. and will run through 12:00 p.m. We have several locations on the church campus.
An important part of our program is sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion which usually occurs in second grade. We can also help you with this if your child is older.
Confirmation preparation this year will occur for those in the 6th grade. We have a special program called CHOSEN from Ascension Press that will be the centerpiece for their preparation along with other activities.
All of our catechists have gone through Virtus training and have had background checks. We have a catechetical training program through Aquinas College.
You can download our registration form below if you are new to our program or have not been with us for over a year. You also need to fill out the permission page. You can return the form via email, the collection basket or in the mail. In August, we have a registration table in the church vestibule where forms can be turned in.
If you are already registered in our program and your information has not changed just download the permission page and return it to us. Annually, we ask for permission to have your child in the diocesan mandated Keeping Kids Safe program..
Inability to pay a fee is not a barrier to coming to our program - they can be waived or a payment schedule can be made.
Thank you for choosing our program. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Director of Religious Education, Rosa Mondragon, at the church office in the Administration Building. Call her at 423-288-8101 God bless.
