PSR (Sunday School)
Goals and Purpose:
This ministry addresses the faith formation of our children to help them deepen their faith with a better understanding of the meaning of what is being taught and experienced through the church and in their lives. Our goal is to introduce each child to the person of Jesus Christ.
Children are expected to be on time for class sessions. Our programs generally meet once a week during the regular school year. Early registration begins in spring, open registration begins in May. Classes start in September and end in May.
Volunteers are required to have patience and understanding of each person’s spiritual growth. There is an initial in-service meeting and Diocesan Certification is available. Class programs are generally one hour per session and meet Sunday from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. A background check is required for all volunteers who work with children.
Parish School of Religion (PSR/CCD) is a program in place for those children that attend public schools from Pre-K - 6th grade. The PSR program runs concurrently with the school year (September-May). Classes meet between Sunday morning Masses from 9:45-10:45am. These classes are required in order to properly prepare them for the Sacraments of the Church, when it is time.
For those students in upper grades, 7th and 8th, they will be preparing for Confirmation. Confirmation is a two year program with them making their Sacrament of Confirmation in their 2nd year. Confirmation classes also meet Sunday mornings between Masses at 9:45-10:45am.

A REGISTRATION FORM MUST BE FILLED OUT FOR EACH CHILD. Forms are available online or in the church office.
