Religious Education (CCD)

Welcome to Religious Education program of St. Margaret Mary!  Our parish is a partner with parents to instill knowledge of Christ in our children.  We recognize parents as the first teachers and hope to help their mission as Catholic Christian parents.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Religious Education of children is an important ministry at our three Parishes.  Through the Religious Education Program, we continue the mission of Jesus Christ:

  •  Proclaiming the Word of God
  • Celebrating the Sacred Mysteries
  • Serving God’s People

The Religious Education Program has as its goal the formation of the children in our parish.  Through activities and experiences in the three areas of Word, Worship and Community, we hope to lead our children to a mature faith that is living, conscious and active.

Classes meet on Sundays from 9:00 am to 10:15 am.  We begin in the church and then move to the classrooms attached to the church.

All parish members and non-members are welcome to join classes. For more information, please send an email to smm_sja_sh@yahoo.com or call 815-426-2550.
