The primary goal of PSR is to help families develop a relationship with God that will support, sustain, challenge, and nourish them throughout their entire lives. The program consists of weekly class sessions, seasonal celebrations, liturgies, family gatherings, and service activities. Regular attendance and parent/guardian participation are integral to the success of the program.
Classroom catechesis and prayerful experiences serve to strengthen children's faith and give it direction, fostering growth through the various stages of faith to Christian maturity.
The process of formation is the responsibility of everyone in our parish: priests, staff, parishioners, godparents, volunteer catechists, and especially parents, sharing our faith by questioning, answering, and telling our stories. It is a gradual process over years of a child's maturing toward an adult Catholic understanding.
St. Patrick Parish School of Religion has many volunteer and service opportunities for adults and teens who’d like to assist in teaching and sharing our Catholic faith with the youth and children of the parish.
There are various ways to lend a hand (either weekly or just occasionally) as Catechists, aides in the classroom or office, as parking and dismissal assistants, or helpers at special events. This could also apply to service hours! If YOU feel a call from God to serve his Church please contact Peggy Webb.
