CCD (CHILDREN'S CATECHETICAL DEVELOPMENT)
Our Children's Faith Formation program (also known as CCD) seeks to serve the spiritual and intellectual formation needs of the children of our parish. Formation sessions begin in early September each year, taking place in the Ackles Parish Life Center each Sunday from 11:15am - 12:30pm for ages pre-K through grade 7.
All families with children not enrolled at Saint Joseph Grade School or another Catholic school are encouraged to sign up. CCD is mandatory for those students and families wishing for their children to celebrate the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation, unless alternative arrangements have been communicated.
The religious formation for our youngest children (ages 3-6) is offered through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, which is a Montessori-based approach to faith formation for young children. We currently have a Level 1 Atrium (ages 3-6) with plans to open a Level 2 (ages 6-9) in 2023.
