Christian Formation News (Grades 1-8)
All CCD students will be using Alive in Christ published by Our Sunday Visitor. Alive in Christ is approved by both the Department for Religious Education in the Pittsburgh diocese and the United Stated Conference of Catholic Bishops. Each Alive in Christ lesson will provide practical examples of the ways we worship, live, pray, and serve together as Catholics, and the lesson introduces children to Catholic figures who stand as models of heroic virtue in everyday life. The student books use developmentally appropriate text, images, and activities that address multiple learning styles and engage students' senses and imagination. Students will encounter Sacred Scripture that is prayed with, reflected upon, studied, and applied to their daily lives. Each year, students will study the core fundamental areas of our faith: Revelation, Trinity, Jesus Christ, The Church, Sacraments, Morality, and the Kingdom of God. Each year these topics will delve more in depth.
Student Safety/Sign Out Students
Just a friendly reminder, we are not going to dismiss the students from class. Parents/Guardians must sign out their children each week. The parent/guardian of children in Grades 1-4 will meet in the front foyer of the school until CCD ends at 10:45AM. Parents/guardians of children in Grades 5-8 will meet in the second-floor school lobby until CCD ends at 10:45AM. You may complete a form if you give permission to a friend, neighbor, or relative to sign out children.
I am looking for volunteers to serve as hall monitors who would be willing to monitor the doors on each floor during CCD class time. You would not need to monitor the doors every week; hall monitors will serve on a rotating basis. I am also looking for classroom aides and substitutes. All volunteers must have or obtain their clearances per Pennsylvania mandate. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the parish office at 412-672-9641.
*Registration Confirmation will be sent via email once processed*
