ccd - updates as of NOVEMBER 11, 2020

All Saints and St. Mary’s Parishes, Ware, MA

Faith Formation Program Schedule 2020 - 2021


!!!!Updated and based on recent COVID-19 restrictions, cases and concerns on November 11, 2020

Due to increasing positive numbers of covid-19, both in the State and our Towns. After consultation and keeping in mind that takes only one case to have family members being in quarantine due to potential contact with a sick person what I experienced myself.  Also being aware of coming up Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and knowing that some people will be attending parties and visiting with families.

I am making a decision of suspending CCD classes in person for all grades until April 2021. 

All classes will be done remotely at this point and we will resume on April 11, 2021.
