Religious Education Year Plan
Updated August 31, 2020
Kinderchurch: Due to our inability to congregate in the Mass and guidelines put forth by the CDC and Alameda County Department of Public Health, Kinderchurch will not be held during the 2020-2021 year. If things change, we will notify via bulletin.
Elementary & Middle School CCD: CCD will be online during the 2020-2021 school year. This will be a self-taught model, so no face-to-face meetings virtually. Registration will begin in mid-September, with the year beginning in mid-October.
First Communion: 1st Graders who complete the year of online CCD will be counted towards their first year of Communion preparation. 2nd Graders hoping to receive the sacrament this year will be postponed a year until 3rd Grade per Bishop Barber.
Confirmation: Confirmation is one of our most incredible ministries at Transfiguration. Building community during the two-year program during class sessions, community service, and retreat is what truly sets us apart from other parishes. In order to preserve that experience, we are NOT holding a Confirmation First Year during 2020-2021. All those hoping to be a part of our program will be invited and are welcome to join us next year; the length of the program will be considered to accommodate this year’s gap.
Oasis (Youth Group): With the heaviest heart, we are postponing Oasis indefinitely. Due to our inability to congregate in the Mass and guidelines put forth by the CDC and Alameda County Department of Public Health, Oasis cannot take place without putting everyone at risk. If there is any change to this, it will be announced in the bulletin, by email, and group text message.
