PROGRAMING FOR STUDENTS GRADES 1-6

Classes for Grades 1-6 are held on Sunday morning 9:45am – 11:00 am.   Families are asked to attend the 8:30 mass, and classes will begin immediately following Mass.  Children’s Liturgy will be held at the 8:30 mass following the same schedule and students in Kindergarten – Grade 4 are encouraged to attend as part of the educational and learning process.  Classes will be held every other week giving families some flexibility for family time and other early Sunday morning activities.

There are no regular classes for Kindergarten students, but they are encouraged to attend Children’s Liturgy at mass.

Since there will no longer be a Junior youth program shared with Saint Agnes,  the 5th & 6th grade students will be catechized on Sundays as well.

The 2019-2020 school year will begin with a Kick-off CCD Morning on August 25, 2019 following the 8:30 mass. This Kick-off Morning will feature a parent meeting while your child meets their CCD teacher for the first time. We ask that you attend the 8:30 mass, and stay for a quick informative meeting about the upcoming year.  Classes officially begin on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
