I taught CCD for about 10 years, and I taught the older kids. I was looking over this list & realized that most parents don't get serious about teaching the prayers until the children are older. Being a teacher I started teaching my son from the time I could get him to sit still for bedtime stories which was when he was just over a year old. I would have to beg parents to help me teach their children the prayers. I am so thankful our current Priest is emphasizing parents role in teaching their kids prayers. It will make the job much easier on the volunteers who teach their kids.... scratchchin Praying angel

Hi Brenda,

theheart rosary God bless you, for the work you have done, and continue to promote!

I was raised with CCD, and found that when life took me away from my faith I came back into Christ, due to my religious education combined with my family's faith.

Over the years I've noticed many young adults, even into there 30's and 40's have a certain rebellious attitude towards what the Church teaches; even to the extent of rude, and disrespectful behavior in Catholic forums. What has gone on with our Catholic schools and CCD programs over the years?

I am working hard on learning the prayers with my son. I knew my basic rosary prayers - but the creeds now have slightly different wording that what I learned. (I'm thinking because the ones I'd learned were probably from just after Vatican II.) I would love to see a guide for parents; our church is all volunteer CCD instructors but there's not a cohesive plan, really. Do you mind if I use your lesson plan?
