Parish School of Religion (PSR)

Registration for this year's PSR has begun. In person instruction begins September 13. There is no greater gift a parent can give their children than to pass on their love of the Catholic Faith.

For students in Grades 1-7, we will reflect on the Sunday's Gosepl along with a liturgical and/or Catchetical theme related to our faith.  Topics include, the Rosary, Catholic prayers, the Saints, the Beatitudes, Pope News, etc.  Students will meet two Sundays a month after the Sunday Mass in the PSR room in Marian Hall.  Classes are from 9:40 am until 10:30 am.
