- What we do (the Commandments)
- The means to our end (Sacraments and Liturgy)
- What we hope for (Prayer and Scripture)
*The second grade CCD class will prepare for 1st Confession and 1st Communion.
- to help students become more committed to their faith and stronger members of the Church
- to increase the desire for truth and goodness, especially by studying the lives of the saints
- to provide students a solid foundation of knowledge on which to base their faith
- and, ultimately, to gain Heaven, for ourselves and each other.
