PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGION (PSR)

2021-2022 CALENDAR

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION REGISTRATION
Sadly, our young people are about a month away from a new school year. Likewise, we are not far from the beginning of PSR. The first day of PSR is September 12th. This is a week later than last year, but with Easter on April 17th this year, we are planning to conclude the year on Palm Sunday, April 10th. Registration for the new catechetical year will begin Monday, August 16th. This year, as in the past, we will have on-line registration. If you are new to the parish and have school age children, or you have a child in kindergarten or first grade, who has not yet been in our PSR program, please contact the office to make sure we know you are planning to have your child participate in the program this year. I want to remind everyone again of the basic requirements for participation in PSR. The first requirement for participation in our religious education program is baptism (if your child has not yet been baptized, we will work to have the child baptized in preparation for other sacraments in the future). The second is an active and faithful participation in the celebration of the Sunday liturgy. It was at baptism that our young peoples’ parents promised to raise them in the practices of the faith. The first and primary example of living our faith is participation in the sacrifice of the Mass. As we prepare to begin a new catechetical year, please be aware that the catechists and the PSR program are an extension, not a replacement, for the primary work of the parents and the celebration of the Mass. Let us work to build up the faith we have been called to in Christ Jesus – for ourselves, and most especially, for our young people. Thank you and God bless you.
