Religious Education Program

Religious Education goes by many names: CCD (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine), Faith Formation, or even Wednesday night classes. Whatever name is used, we are very proud of our program.

We employ professional teachers who are committed to offering the best possible learning experience for each child. The experience includes the use of a textbook, handouts, lectures, discussions, written journal, homework, individual and group prayer as well as other religious learning experiences.

Classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 PM for students in 1st through 7th grade who attend public school. Classes begin Wednesday, September 20, 2017 and go through April 18, 2018. Students are required to register each year.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

During the 10:30 Sunday mass, children in Kindergarten through First Communion are invited to leave for a short time for the Liturgy of the Word. 

VBS • Vacation Bible School

During the summer, for 5 days in June, Monday-Friday, from 9:30 a.m. - Noon, the parish building and grounds are transformed into a themed faith camp for children entering kindergarten through 3rd grade. Each day the children will take part in fun Scripture-themed activities: Bible points, crafts, team building games, lively songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the things that are featured at VBS. Older children and adults attend as "camp leaders." For more information or to volunteer, please contact the Good Shepherd School Office, 763-545-4285.
