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.

Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. It is an old term for religious education that was tried to be changed to simple "religious education" for those in garde and high school, but it is so engrained that it is still called CCD

This depends purely upon when the Director of Religious Education schedules it. There are no religious requirements dictating when CCD should be held. For the purposes of convenience, most CCD classes are scheduled on Sundays, after the Mass. However, if a child was to attend a Catholic school, their CCD would be taught in the Religion class daily, allowing them the choice not to attend CCD when their parish schedules it.

To be a member of the Catholic Church means to believe in Catholic Christianity and be a official in the Roman Catholic Church and/or attend a Catholic Church.
