 Program Overview:

At Saint Catherine of Siena, Religious Education classes are encouraged for all children in first grade through high school who attend non-Catholic schools.

All classes are held on Mondays at two different times:

5:00 to 6:15 and 6:30 to 7:45

If you are interested in registering your child for religious education classes and would like further information, please contact the Office of Religious Education at 703.759.3530 or

High School CCD Information:

The Apologetics Class is held from 5:00 to 6:15.  The 6:30 class this year focused on a 10-part program, “You: Life, Love and the Theology of the Body”, based on Saint John Paul II’s teachings. It addresses many of the issues teens are already exposed to via entertainment media, societal pressures, and their own interactions with each other. We hope to continue both classes in the 2019-2020 school year.


If you would like more information about volunteering for the CCD program, please contact Kim Livaudais at 703-759-3530 or Catechists must be confirmed Catholics, at least 14 years of age. All children of assistants and catechists receive free tuition.
