DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN ENROLLED IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS?
If you have school-age children (1st grade through 12th) who do not attend a Catholic school and you live within the parish boundaries of St. Lawrence and are not registered, please fill out a Parish Registration Card found in the vestibule of the church or at the parish office before registering for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) classes. New students will need to have certificates or copies of all sacraments received.
Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD)
The confraternity originates from the various Roman curial congregations concerned with Catholic education, direction passing to the various organs of the Church on a national level. In the United States, national authority is in the hands of the Division of Catechesis/Religious Education in the Department of Education of the United States Catholic Conference. The program then passes to the diocesan level where, ideally, education is headed by a diocesan director. In the parish, a local director, who is supposed to be well-trained in catechetical instruction, administers a program customarily developed by a parish commission or board.
