It's that time of year again. Time for catechists to get their lesson plans in order and decorate their classrooms. CCD Registration started today at our parish and is in full swing. Lots of new and eager students and volunteers are ready for a new CCD year to begin.
Our CCD Open House is September 12th right after the 9:30 Mass. We are having a parent meeting prior to the start of the CCD Open House in the Fellowship Hall. This will allow parents to meet the DRE and it gives our priest and DRE the opportunity to express how much parent involvement is needed for their child’s faith education and to answer any questions that they may have. The CCD Open House is right after the meeting so that the parents and children can meet the catechist, see the classroom, and find out what they will be doing for the year. The catechist can provide the parents with information of what is expected in the classroom and what the children will be doing during the year. They can also inform parents of the expectations and rules of the class that will help in making the classroom productive, creative, and enjoyable year for all. Teachers can also ask if parents are interested in volunteering and if they have any information that can help aid them in better understanding their child and how to contact them.
After CCD Open House we will have a Church Potluck Luncheon to build community and relationships and help promote a great CCD year.
When is CCD Registration at your parish? What is your church planning to do?
