Dear Immaculate Heart of Mary Parents,

It is that time of year again when we start the 2023-2024 year of CCD formation for your child. The teachers  are excited to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to your family.

Form B — Consent to Participate, Code of Conduct, and Consent for Emergency Medical Treatment (In the blank

  • IHOM Parish instruction will again use the series “Christ Our Life” from Loyola Press which is in use in other local parishes.
  • Sacramental preparation for First Communion and Confirmation will once again be folded into the regular CCD program and will not be taught in separate classes.
  • We are asking this year that for family formation, families will attempt as much as possible to attend the 6 pm Wednesday Mass. Families will sit together and then students will leave the church to go directly to CCD classes. Classes will then run from approximately 6:30 and students will be released at 7:15.
  • If a parent for some reason cannot attend the Wednesday Mass with their child (children), students should be brought into the church so that they can sit with their CCD teacher/class. Students arriving after Mass has started can come into the church and an adult will be there to guide them quietly to a seat. Do not drop your child at the Parish Hall as it will be locked.
  • For safety purposes, we will be having the pickup of students at 7:15 pm at the back of the hall on Thornton Street. Parents may line up on Thornton (this is a public street so please allow for passing traffic) and students will be released through the back doors.
  • Teachers for this year will be:
    • Kindergarten – Traci Pustejovsky & Mariann Pustejovsky
    • 1st – Amanda Kettler and Sara Walker
    • 2nd – Mandy Sullins & Emily Kolar
    • 3rd & 4th – Justin Kaska & Melanie Hejl 
    • 5th & 6th – Shelly Burge & Katie Holcomb
    • 7th & 8th – Dan Hill & Shanna Hill
    • HS – John Gerik, Ernie Pustejovsky, Nick Haferkamp, Molly Gerik, & Anita Murphy
  • Fees will be $20 per student or $40 per family.
  • The Immaculate Heart of Mary CCD Calendar can be found here:  2023-2024 CCD Calendar
  • We ask everyone – students, teachers, and parents – to practice the virtues of kindness and patience as we try to lead all peoples to Christ.
