Welcome to Holy Family’s Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) Webpage! We are excited that you have joined us here to explore the various aspects of our faith formation!
Religious Education Program Overview
Our Religious Education Program at Holy Family Parish is for students in grades 1-8 and is intended to help Parents to hand on the Deposit of Catholic Faith to their Children, so that they may come to understand the richness of the Catholic faith, and come to deeper communion with Christ. This program educates the whole person, not only intellectual knowledge but also emotional, and the meaning of their existence. The program also prepares children and the youth for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
The classes meet September through May, once a week on Tuesday for 1 1/2 hour at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
A two-year preparation is required for receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation; also there are additional preparation meetings for students and parents.
The CCD Program is led by the Director of Religious Education (DRE) Sr. Irena Lisowska, under the direction of Fr. Stash Dailey the Holy Family Parish Administrator, and our committed group of catechists wonderful people of faith and of prayer.
All children of the Parish, whether home-schooling, attending Catholic or Public schools, are invited to attend our CCD Program.
Classes are also available for high school youth (9-12) who are preparing for the Sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation through the parish’s RCIA Program. Classes meet September through May on Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
For young women in high school the Little Servant Sisters offer a Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary which meets monthly on the First Saturday of the month following morning Mass and confessions which begin at 9am.
Sodality is a special devotion to Our Blessed Mother. It aims to awaken in young women a love for the Mother of God and through her example and intercession, to lead them to a practical Christian life. For more information please contact Sr. Bozena 856-874-6096 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to keep our CCD Program and our Catechists in your prayers. The religious education of our young people is a community effort.
