Our weekly program runs from mid-September through April and provides children in grades K-8 with religious education and sacrament preparation. Our volunteer catechists strive to partner with parents to formalize faith concepts which the children experience through their family practice of the faith.
Classes are held:
Tuesday 4:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. (K-8)
Wednesday 4:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. (K-8)
Wednesday 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. (6-8)

Children typically receive First Reconciliation and First Communion in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade. Preparation occurs from 1st-8th grade during the weekly CCD classes, as well as retreats and service events. Registered families will be invited to a parent meeting in October for more information.
If your child is not in 2nd or 8th grade and needs to receive one of these sacraments (but is already baptized) please contact Darcy at email@example.com.
To help our young children engage fully in the Mass, we provide a Children’s liturgy during the 9:00 A.M. Sunday Mass. Children are dismissed with catechists from the beginning of Mass to Clairvaux Hall and return at the Preparation of the Gifts. During CLOW children hear the same readings and Gospel in child-friendly language and participate in an age-appropriate reflection. Children are welcome as long as they are comfortable attending, typically ages 3-8. Parents are welcome! Please email Christy at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Babies and toddlers up to age 5 are welcome to join us for prayer, story, song, and movement! MMPT classes are fun, engaging, developmentally appropriate, and faith-based music classes for children ages 0-5 with a parent or caregiver. Sessions are on the 3rd Tuesday or Wednesday of the Month from 10:00-11:00 AM in Fontenay Chapel. See flyer below. Email email@example.com to register.
