CCD RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM
ASSUMPTION CATHOLIC CHURCH
Catechesis aims to
bring about in the believer an ever more mature faith in Jesus Christ, a deeper
knowledge and love of his person and message, and a firm commitment to follow
him… With God’s grace, catechesis develops initial faith, nourishes the
Christian life, and continually unfolds the mystery of Christ until the believer
willingly becomes his disciple. - National Directory
for Catechesis (USCCB)

Hi Father Fred!
I just wanted to send you some trailers of our videos so that you can see
the work that our Sisters do. Some of the parishioners have been helping us
