Attendance & Participation

  • You child must attend Mass at St. Mary of the Angels Church every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation.  This is not only a requirement of CCD but also a Precept of the Church.

  • Your child must have Father or one of the approved CCD Teachers sign their Mass Attendance Sheet.  If your child is not going to Mass at St. Mary’s due to vacation or other obligation, then a bulletin must be signed by the priest of the Catholic Church they attend.  If your child does not have a valid signature, it will be assumed they did not attend Mass.  Teachers are not allowed to sign for any Mass other than the current one.  The Mass Attendance Sheet should be brought to class weekly for review by the teacher.

  • Your child must attend and participate in CCD class every week.  If your child is sick or unable to attend class, you must call the Church Office prior to CCD Class and leave a message for the teacher.

  • Excessive (more than 3) unexcused absences at either Mass or CCD Class will result in your child being removed from the CCD program this year.

  • Your child is expected to learn the above Concepts and Prayers.  As the Parent, you are expected to continue teaching the child at home and reinforce what is taught in CCD.  If your child does not pass the required Unit Tests, they will be asked to repeat the year of CCD.

Parent or Guardian Responsibility

  • We are committed to providing your child with a quality Catholic religious education in both a fun and supportive environment.  Your active participation in your child's education is essential.  As parents and guardians, you are the first witness of God's love and grace for your child.  If you provide a model of the Catholic faith (at home, at church, and in prayer) then your child will take to heart what we are trying to teach them.
