The Mission of St. Vincent de Paul CCD Program is to provide quality Catholic Christian education for our students. Instruction in prayer, scriptures, the sacraments, worship, doctrine, tradition, morals and family values prepares our students to become active, informed and devout members of the Body of Christ. It is our mission to assist in preparing your child for a life in Christ and to instill a desire to serve others in accordance with the Gospel message.
Parents are the primary teachers of our Faith to all children. Teachers are only aids in this endeavor, so we need your help in this process. Parents can assist their child during CCD in many ways such as reviewing lessons, asking questions, being interested in and aware of what is happening in the classroom, making sure any work sent home from CCD/RCIC is completed and returned during the next scheduled class; volunteering in the classroom and for any special events; and by attending Parent Informational Meetings if their child is preparing to receive the Sacrament of Eucharist (usually our Second Grade CCD Students). Also, parent attendance with your child at the liturgies or other parish activities will be a source of unspoken encouragement to both your children and your child’s CCD/RCIC Teacher. We welcome and encourage parent involvement in every way. No program of religious instruction can be fully effective without the continuous interest, support and example of your Family.
