CCD The Holy Trinity CCD program serves children from kindergarten through 8th grade. Classes meet weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:45 pm. Most Wednesdays, class begins with Mass where the children are encouraged to serve as altar servers, readers, musicians, Eucharistic ministers, and ushers.  Students are taught by a dedicated staff of volunteers using the Loyola Press Christ Our Life curriculum.  Our program is small enough that we know our children by name, and we are able to encourage each child as a unique and precious child of God. If you have any questions about the CCD program or would like to enroll your child, contact Nicole Herlin at n.herlin@sttafw.org.

Children’s Liturgy Children’s Liturgy of the Word is an opportunity for children ages three through nine to receive God’s Word at an age appropriate level.  Most Sundays, the young children are dismissed from the Mass to pray and to hear and experience the Gospel through stories, songs, and crafts.  They then return to Mass to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist.  No prior registration is required, but children younger than three should be accompanied by an adult.
