CCD is Epiphany Parish’s religious education program designed to prepare our children for the sacraments. Religious studies and enrichment are available for the elementary grades during the school year, September through May. These studies introduce the young children to the Life of Jesus, to prayer and to Christian service. Children and their parents are prepared for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist by attending classes together during the second grade studies. Provisions are made for older children who have not received these Sacraments in grade two. Parents take an active role in this preparation as they are the primary educators of their children. Weekly attendance at Mass is primary and essential to the Religious Faith Formation of our children. Families come to Mass to be with God and God’s People, to hear God’s Word and to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus.
Religious studies and enrichment and the preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation take place during the school year for seventh and eighth graders. The two-year program for the reception of the Sacrament includes the continuing Faith Formation studies begun at the elementary level. In addition, Confirmation Candidates participate in outreach to the community (fifty hours of service), participate in a Day of Retreat, and attend the Liturgies of Holy Week.
