CCD ANNOUNCEMENT – dated 22nd July 2020
In light of the current situation, the CCD Ministry has decided to postpone online registration for the 2020-2021 intake of students until further notice.
Given the continued suspension of face-to-face catechetical sessions and the uncertainty of when other sacraments might resume, our team has decided to wait until we can get more clarity on the situation before accepting a new batch of students and recruiting new catechists.
Our team is also exploring the feasibility of conducting future catechism classes via distance learning. We remain committed to helping prepare our previous cohort of students who were affected by the pandemic to receive their sacraments, when the Archdiocese of Singapore allows the other sacraments to resume.
While we know the decision to postpone online registrations might disappoint some families, we ask for your patience and understanding as we learn to navigate these untested waters. Thank you for your continued support of the CCD Ministry.
