What is PSR?
Through our Parish School of Religion (PSR), we offer religious education, worship, service, and social experiences for parish families. Our objective is to guide the young in experiencing prayer and liturgy, in learning the rich heritage of the Catholic faith, in building community, and in learning to serve others. The PSR Program is for Elementary age children. We have a great team of Catechists who come and share the love of Christ each Monday evening to serve, pray with, and teach our children. They bring with them years of experience, a heart full of love, and passion for their faith to our students.
“Like a wise teacher, Jesus takes hold of us where we are and leads us progressively toward the Father.” (CCC 2607)
When is PSR?
PSR is held on Monday evenings from 4:45-6 PM. Children meet in their assigned classrooms. Pickup for children is in front of the Social Hall at 6 PM. Please check our calendar for all dates and activities.
Inclement weather sometimes causes the cancellation of classes. Remember, if the DeKalb country schools are closed, we are closed as well.
