Children’s Religious Education (CCD)
Children’s Religious Education classes will begin remotely on September 7, 2020. Parents will then have the option of choosing to continue with remote learning or attend in person classes. In person classes are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 from 6:00-7:35pm. Classes will continue to take place on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:45PM, from mid-September through early-May in the Parish School.
Led by caring and trained volunteers, children experience Christ’s love for them and the Church through Bible teaching, prayer, living the life of discipleship, and encountering God through live-giving sacraments.
2020-2021 Registration for Grades 1 through 8
When Religious Education classes begin in person on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. we will be following all recommendations provided by state and local health agencies and the Office of Catechesis to best ensure the safety of both students and catechists. Parents are asked to drop off their children at the south cafeteria doors where they will be guided to their classroom. Children will be required to wear face masks at all times during their hour of class. Children will be dismissed from class at 7:45p.m. from the south cafeteria doors.
The registration fee is $45 for the first child and $10 for each additional child enrolled. Once you have registered you will be contacted by the director to schedule a meeting where you will be asked to bring the necessary documents to complete registration. Payments can be sent to:
St. Matthew Cathedral
1701 Miami Street
South Bend, IN 46613
You can register your child/children through our online registration form. There is one form for registering the first child in each family. If enrolling more than one child, please use the sibling form for any other children after the first.
