Parish School of Religion

Introduction

We offer religious education classes for children 3 years old through seniors in high school for all students interested, public or Catholic school. Classes are held September-April in the school from 10:15-11:15 on Sunday mornings. We have graded, one hour classes provided to assist parents in teaching Catholic doctrine and faith formation. Prayer, opportunities to learn more about the Mass, service projects, animal blessing, advent wreath making, server training, and a faith fair are also included in the program. Through an orientation right before the start of PSR, a handbook, calendar, and registration form is distributed to each family.  Parents may register any time of the year by contacting Sabrina at the parish office.
