St. Patrick Parish School of Religion (PSR) provides religious instruction and formation in the Catholic faith tradition to students of St. Patrick Parish attending public and non-Catholic private schools in grades 1-8.
Classes are offered September-May on Wednesday evenings:
Session “A” 5:00-6:15 pm or Session “B” 6:45-8:00 pm.
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 is 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.
