Catechism Classes for Students from International Schools

CCD provides catechism classes to students at international schools in the Archdiocese of Singapore. The academic calendar begins in September and ends in May with term breaks correlating with most International School holidays. Classes range from Grade 1 to Grade 8 (Confirmation).

Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are received in Grade 2 (7 years old by September 2017). Sacrament of Confirmation is received in Grade 8 (13 years old by September 2017). Online registration opens on August 1st until August 31st. Copy of the baptismal record is needed for the sacramental classes.

We look forward to having your children in the program and our combined effort in faith formation. Please note that space is limited. Acceptance is on a first-come-first-served basis.
