Confraternity of Christian Doctrine


  “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 17 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”  (Luke 18: 16-17)


   The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) is part of the Church's educational outreach for those students who do not attend Catholic Schools, providing catechesis (instruction), formation, and sacramental preparation to children in grades 1-8.

   While parents are the primary religious educators of their children, CCD seeks to support parents in the important endeavor of raising their children in the moral life and the Tradition of the Catholic Faith. Our Catechists (religious education teachers) are faithful parishioners who have responded to God’s call to support the religious education of our children. Through weekly lessons, activities, and prayer, we seek to help our children to know, love, and serve God.

  Classes are held on Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:30 pm) at Immaculate Conception School beginning in September and continuing through the first week of May.

   Sacramental preparation is coordinated with Immaculate Conception School.  Eligible candidates in Second Grade will make their First Confession, followed later by their First Holy Communion. Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins in the seventh grade, with candidates receiving the sacrament in their Eighth Grade year on a date determined by the Office of the Bishop.
