The Religious Ed Program (CCD-Confraternity of Christian Doctrine Program) at St. Anne’s is operated in accordance with the requirements of the Diocese of Hong Kong. We are one of the few parishes in Hong Kong with an English speaking program that operate classes from Pre-Kindergarten through Confirmation. The teachers and administrators of the program are all members of the Parish who offer their time and talents as volunteers to teach the next generation of Catholics. We use the Blest are We series which is approved by the Council of American Bishops. This program provides a solid foundation of the Catholic Faith and Doctrine. It is our prayer that through this program every child will develop a better appreciation of their faith and learn the joy of being an active Catholic in thought and action.

Teachers & Teachers’ Aides for CCD

Perhaps the most critical ministry in which the Church engages is passing the faith on to those we most treasure, our children. Teaching the faith was the role first given to the Apostles after Jesus' resurrection, and it remains the primary ministry of Bishops today. Teaching our own children in structured ways such as CCD is a concrete and vital actualization of that sacred ministry.

We are making a special appeal for women and men, both mature and in their teen years, to step forward before the Summer break to commit to leading a class in our CCD program starting in September. In the nine months between mid September to the 3rd week of May, there are approximately 25 scheduled class sessions and almost 10 weeks of recesses during school holidays. Please be generous to God's mission among us for our children through this vital ministry

We are looking for teachers, administration staff, and a possible new leader of the program for the next generation of CCD.You can contact me, Paul Munder, Sandra Gallaudet, or Amy Turner in the next 3 weeks to convey your willingness.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration. Fr. John
