Summer has come and gone and we must move forward with the promise of anticipation and excitement of the CCD year ahead, 2018-2019! I hope the Summer break was wonderful for you all. As we all had a chance to refocus, unwind, relax and refresh it won't be long before we begin a new year of Religious Education. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone for the new year of Religious Education. It is a glorious way to begin and grow our relationship with Jesus, and preparation for Sacraments.
Registration for the 2018-2019 Religious Education will be after all Masses the weekend of September 1-2 in the Church Vestibule area. Please register you children, Pre-K through 9th grade, as soon as you can to aid in planning.
Classes will begin September 9, 2018 at 9:15 am to 10:45 am in St. Mary's Grade School.
The Religious Education program is an important responsibility for all the Immaculate Conception Parish family, to help the children to learn and grow in faith as well as helping parents to fulfill the promise thy made at the child's baptism to raise them in the Catholic Faith. We will be using Loyola Press's Religious Education program: Finding God; Our Response to God's Gifts. The weekly lessons inspire and teach and challenge children and teens to be good disciples of Jesus and to live the gospel in their daily lives.
Thank you for your dedication and faithfulness to our CCD program!
