The Office of Catholic Christian Formation (CCF) at OLGC offers an apprenticeship to the Catholic Christian life for children and youth from preschool through 8th grade.*

The program for children and youth is divided into three sections:

  • Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS Atrium): Level I ages 3-6; LevelI/II ages 3-9; Level II ages 6-9; Level III ages 9-12
  • Elementary CCF: Grades K-6 (Please note that our 8:30 am and 10:30 am sessions are quite full at this point in time. We will place your child in the session that has the most space for an additional student. Thanks!)
  • Junior High CCF: Grades 7-8

Faith formation for high school students (grades 9-12), as well as activities and service opportunities for junior high students (grades 7-8), is offered by OLGC’s Youth Ministry.

Please note that in order to participate in Elementary or Jr High CCF, we ask your family to be registered parishioners at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church. For parish registration information, click here.

Registration for CCF and CGS is now closed. For more information, contact Guadalupe.
