2021-2022 CCD Registration Open

Catechesis (CCD) Registration has started for the 2021-2022 school year and we hae both in-person and remote options!

To register, please go to our website at: As always, registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. 

Some options begin with 4 year old preschool although registration at this age is optional. Catechesis begins formally in 1st grade and goes through 8th grade.

We offer many Catechesis options knowing that each family and child has individual needs:

    • Co-Op (formerly Regular) Classroom (In Person) 
    • Directed Study (In Person or Remote) 
    • Lectionary Based
    • Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
    • Video (Remote)
    • All Abilities (Special Needs)

Each grade focuses on a different aspect of our faith which, when participated in over the eight years, forms a whole.  For this reason, it is expected that the child attend Catechesis at each grade level. If a grade has been missed, please call.


Each year we are always in need of catechists/teachers!! Please consider this wonderful opportunity and find out about the tuition benefits that our volunteers receive!

Call with any questions or concern:

Director of Catechesis
