Parish School of Religion (PSR)

See below for resources. I add new ones almost every day.  (Last edit: 6/26/20)

Bring in your CRS Rice Bowls at any time to the Church or Rectory.

... we can speak of four distinct levels of Church. There is the Universal Church led by the bishop of Rome and all bishops in union with him. There is the local diocesan church. Led by its local bishop, it is uniquely positioned to guide us on how best to implement our faith in our own time and culture. There is the local parish church, from which we receive most of our religious instruction and the sacraments. Finally, there is this fourth layer of Church. The Domestic Church plays a key role in our sanctification because it is the primary place where we practice coming to intimately love other persons. from the Archdiocesan website

Current PSR students are automatically enrolled in classes for next year.

I will send paperwork home in the fall to confirm personal information, get permissions and collect fees.

Wednesday, September 2, 2020 will be our first day.  Not sure what that will look like.

An Act of Spiritual Communion (modern translation based on the prayer by St. Alphonsus Liguori)

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Holy Eucharist and I love You above all things. Although I am not worthy, I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually to me. I embrace You as if You are already with me and I unite myself completely to You. Never allow me to be separated from You. Amen.

  • Your response to the global pandemic and the “stay-at-home” order will be part of your children’s formation in faith. 
  • The Church documents teach us that you, the parents, are the principal catechists of your children. Full stop, nothing held back. 
  • But now in this unusual time, without even Mass, you are it.
  • The value, the emphasis, the hope and the delight that you place on your faith is the faith that you will pass on.
  • I am praying for all of you in your own church of the home, the domestic Church.
