Children's Religious Education

Children's Religious Education 

 

CCD Classes - PreK-12th Grade, September though May:

 

The goal of Religious Education is to help children respond to Christ and His Message through prayer and activities related to everyday life. We provide age appropriate catechism using various modalities of learning which engage our youth and motivate them to live out their faith. In addition to classroom time, our program also offers opportunities for time spent in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

CCD includes Sacramental Preparation (First Reconciliation/ First Communion in 2nd Grade, and Confirmation in 11th Grade.)

At the Church of the Madalene, all CCD classes are taught by volunteers who have been VIRTUS trained and have completed a back ground check. Classes for Pre-K through 10th grade meet on Sundays from 11:15-12:15. High School Confirmation classes meet on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30. 

 

VBS and Totus Tuus - PreK though 12th Grade, June and July: 

VBS and Totus Tuus are weeklong summer catechetical programs. The youth participate in activities and lessons base on the specific themes of the programs. VBS and Totus Tuus also provide an excellent opportunity for the older youth and parents to volunteer their time in service to the parish. 

 

Vocation Awareness Program:

The Vocation Awareness Program provides an opportunity for families to participate in a "traveling" Rosary activity. Families pledge to pray the rosary as a family as the pray and discuss the discernment process with their children.
