CCD classes are canceled until further notice due to the pandemic.

About the Program

Our Religious Education/Catholic Christian Doctrine (CCD) Program provides the parents of our parish with a partnership in the faith formation of our children.

Sacrament preparation classes are held on Sundays from 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. from late September through May of each school year with holidays off at Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Presidents’ Day.

Registration

A copy of each student’s Baptismal Certificate must be on file. Submit a completed Catechetical Program Registration Form to register.

Volunteering Opportunities in Religious Education

Or would you like to help introduce an adult to our faith?If you would like to work as a Catechist—or as a volunteer along with the Catechists—who share their faith with the children on a weekly basis while they prepare for the Sacraments, call the Parish Office at (510) 895-5631 and leave a message with your name and number for Anita Marquez, Catechetics Coordinator, email her at amarquez36@aol.com, or just show up on a Sunday morning and Anita will find a place for you.
