CCD Program

Holy Trinity parish offers a Religious Education program for all children of the parish. Our program follows the Religious Education Curriculum Guidelines of the Peoria Diocese.

Religious Education (CCD) Classes are held on Wednesday evenings. Grades 1 to 6 meet at the former Corpus Christi Catholic School Junior High building, located at 705 N. Roosevelt Street, Bloomington, Illinois. Grades 7 and 8 meet at the Holy Trinity Parish Center at 711 N. Main Street.

Grades 1 to 6 meet from 6:15 to 7:15 pm.  Grades 7 and 8 meet from 6:00 pm to 7:15 pm.

The goals of the program are to provide the children of our parish with knowledge of our faith, understanding of the sacraments, spiritual growth through prayer and worship, and opportunities to develop as Catholics who serve their parish and community.
