Children Program


CCD - K-8

The Religious Education program at St. John's (sometimes known as CCD) is available for children in grades K-8. Our catechists offer children instruction on sacraments, prayer, Christian life and morality. This instruction supplements the daily work of parents who take their children to Mass, celebrate the Sacraments, pray with their children, and model Christian life and morality in their everyday lives.

CCD - K-5

Classes for K-5 children are offered on Sundays beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending around 9:20 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6:30 to 7:30. Classes meet from September through May in the school building. The schedules for the K-5 classes can be downloaded by clicking on the following links:
