Mass Attendance

All students enrolled in the CCD program must attend Mass every Sunday or Saturday evening and every Holy Day of Obligation. The Catholic Church has always required a practicing Catholic to attend Mass every weekend and all Holy Days of Obligation. Mass attendance will be monitored using weekly children's envelopes (handed out through the Religious Education Department). If you have attended another church (must be a Catholic Church) that weekend, the student must bring in a bulletin from that church signed by the Priest or Deacon of the Mass. A total of 3 unexcused Masses for the year will put the student in noncompliance.

Failure to comply with this policy will result in your child not completing the  requirements needed to be promoted on to the next level of Religious Education.
