Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD)


The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine was an association established at Rome in 1562 for the purpose of giving religious education. Its modern usage, the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine is commonly referred to by its abbreviation, CCD or C.C.D., or simply as “Catechism,” and provides religious education to Catholic children attending secular schools. CCD attendance is considered by Vatican officials to be vital to children’s development as Catholics. These classes not only educate children about Jesus and the Catholic faith but prepare children to receive the sacraments of Penance (confession), Holy Communion, and Confirmation. At Blessed Sacrament our CCD program meets on Wednesday nights with a monthly mass at 7:15 P.M for all those attending CCD classes. To find out more please call our parish office at (402) 474-4249.
