Best Answer

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine was an association established in 1562 in Rome for the purpose of providing religious education. In its more modern usage, CCD is the religious teaching program of the Catholic Church. These classes are taught to school age children to learn the basic doctrines of their faith.

This depends purely upon when the Director of Religious Education schedules it. There are no religious requirements dictating when CCD should be held.
