Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Catechism year!

It is with great joy to serve your child/children. Our focus this year is to enhance the knowledge of the Catholic Faith to your child/children. After all you are the first and for most educator in the life of your child/children including spirituality.

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to participate in the classroom through observation and/or assistance once a month.

We would like to remind you of the following:

  • Class starts promptly at 8:30 am and ends at 9:45 am on Sundays, starting August 21
  • If at all possible your child’s/children religious education should come first before all extracurricular activities.
  • Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy. (Fourth Commandment)
  • Attending class is of great importance.
  • Please remind your child/children of their obligation to respect their classmates, teachers and teacher assistants.
  • All grades will attend the 10:00 am Mass as a group, once a month usually on the first Sunday of the month. Please refer to the CCD calendar if there is a change.
  • Some teachers are asking parents to sign in or sign out their child from the classroom.
  • Any person going to the classroom, other than students and teachers, must get a Visitors Pass from Virginia Holguin or the church Office.  The Office is open Monday thru Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  This is for Safety reasons.
  • CCD students must sign in when attending Mass, except when going to Mass with their class.  The sign in book will be located in the back of the church on a stand.  If a student attends Mass in another parish they should get a signed church bulletin from the priest and turn it in to their teacher.
  • November 20th ends the Year of Mercy; the church is offering a plenary indulgence to the faithful.

Thank you for your cooperation and support. If you have any comments, questions, concerns please direct them to your child/children’s teacher.  You may also contact me, Virginia Holguin at 575-313-2313
