Here is an update on the schedule for CCD for the rest of this year.
We will not have a regular class for the next two weeks (February 3 & 10) due to the parish mission and Ash Wednesday. However, we consider these two events a part of our CCD program. Please bring your child to the mission on Wednesday, Feb 3rd at 7 pm. We hope parents and siblings will stay also. The mission should be over by 8 pm.
On the following week, Feb 10, Ash Wednesday Mass will be celebrated at 7 pm. Again, we hope our students will attend with their family.
Here is the tentative line-up of topics for the remainder of the year.
Feb 17 – Ten Commandments 1
Feb 24 – Ten Commandments 2
March 2 – Forgiveness (Ch 15)
March 9 – Penance (Ch 16)
March 16 – No Class
March 23 – Anointing of the Sick (Ch 18)
March 30 – Matrimony (Ch 24)
April 6 – Holy Orders (Ch 25)
April 13 – Prayer (Ch 12)
April 20 – Overflow date
April 27 – Last Class
As you can see, we are fairly well booked. Frankly, the second half of the year has some of the more interesting and engaging lessons. As always, parents are most welcome to sit in. I have one date open (April 20). I expect something will occur to shift the schedule to occupy that date. I’m not worried. We may have a CCD Penance Service that may fill one of the earlier dates and cause everything else to shift down. That is still up in the air as of this writing.
