The Religious Education Office at Good Shepherd Catholic Church provides education programs to its parishioners in order to assist them in their efforts to live a sanctified life as disciples of Christ.  Our programs include youth catechism for children of all ages including those who are preparing for First Communion, Confirmation and RCIC; and religious education programs for adults that include RCIA and Sacramental Preparation.

Youth Education Programs (CCD)
Good Shepherd's Religious Education program for youth assists parents in the formation of their children's Catholic faith through specialized catechetical courses.  We offer programs for children of all ages so they can participate in continuous faith formation throughout their youth.  Our programs are designed to teach them the foundational principles of the Faith at the early stages of life, prepare them to celebrate the sacraments at the age of reason, and assist them when they become teens as they confirm their faith and define their role in the ministry work of the Church.
