Planning for the 2019/2020 CCD school year is well underway. St. John’s Religious Education Office is considering how many teachers will be needed for our Pre-K – 8 th Grade programs. To insure accurate planning for this coming Fall, CCD Registration forms for the 2019/2020 School Year have been emailed to all returning families. Registration forms are also available for download here. Please fill out the form with all requested contact and registration information and return it with your check to the CCD office at your earliest convenience. You will receive a rate reduction if you register before June 30, 2019.

We will do our best to accommodate your wishes as to class session. Once the class is full however, we may have to put your child into a different session. You have greater choice when you register early. If you have any questions, or need information, please email [email protected] or call 703-356-5275.

In Testimonium...

"May you see your children's children! Peace be upon Israel!" Psalm 128,6

But what good would it be to see grandchildren who are "useless... ungodly" (Sirach 16,1), "undisciplined... shameful [or] impudent" (Sirach 22,3-5)?

The question, "What does my grandfather want me to do?" probably does not cross our minds frequently. In fact, I suspect it happens more often than we like to admit that parents actively shield their children from their own parents, whether they are perceived to be irrationally overbearing or positively irreligious. But imagine the cultural consequences of successive generations being sequestered from their ancestors. That spells the end of culture.
