CCD Registration - NOW OPEN

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Beginning this year all children will be automatically registered for our CCD program if they have attended classes in the previous school year. This includes First Communion and Confirmation. Students who have not yet registered in our Catechetical program or were not registered last year may call me at the parish office to register or fill the CCD Registration form and mail/drop by the parish office. 

**First Holy Communion candidates:  We will need a copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate and registration fees. The registration fees for First Holy Communion are $40/child. The fees for our St. Edward School children are $20.  The difference is due to having most of the education for First Holy Communion taught in the SES curriculum.

**Grades 1st and 3rd-8th:  Fr. Blanda has approved that we will not have fees for these grades.

**Teens for Christ (Grades 9th and 10th):  The registration fee is $25/student.

**Confirmation candidates:  We will need an updated copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate and registration fees: The registration fee for Confirmation is $125.  This includes the Confirmation retreat.

As of this time, we are planning to have regular scheduled classes/meeting sessions. As we hear more from the state regarding guidelines, we will inform you. Please know that we have your children’s best interest at heart. We are committed to giving you the best assistance when it comes to your child’s learning the Catholic faith. 

By way of email, parents whose children are registered will receive class times and dates along with other pertinent information. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the parish office or by email (deaconboutte@stpetersofnewiberia.com). We look forward to working with you and your children.

I would like to especially thank our teachers who will be teaching this year. We also thank Mrs. Eileen Boudoin, Sr. Mary Magdalene and Mrs. Myra Corona for their past service to our program.

High School Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace:

  • It roots us more deeply in the divine filiation which makes us cry, "Abba! Father!"
  • It unites us more firmly to Christ
  • It increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us
  • It renders our bond with the Church more perfect
  • It gives us a special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witnesses of Christ, to confess the name of Christ boldly, and never to be ashamed of the Cross.
