CCD / Faith Formation Class Mission
To teach the Syro Malabar Catholic faith in partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children. The journey of faith begins at Baptism and calls for children to actively participate with their parents in the full life of our Catholic Church. In order for this journey to enrich the lives of everyone involved, each catechist, parent and student must understand and embrace his/her role.

Class logistics 2021-22
In order to provide a healthy environment for in-person sessions at the church facility, we have divided our faith formation families into 2 groups.
Each group will be attending an in-person session after 9:30 AM Holy Mass every 2 weeks.
Virtual Sessions will be from 2 to 3PM for that group which have not been scheduled for the in-person session on that Sunday.
This cycle will be repeated every Sunday, until we are safe to have a full fledged in-person session. All our Faith Formation program participating Children are encouraged to join 9:30 AM Children's Holy Mass,
In-person session will be restricted only for the assigned group families for that day. If you would like to know, which group your child is included, please click the link below:-
