Family PSR (Parish School of Religion)


The Family PSR (School of Religion) Program combines weekly at-home parent/child catechesis with a monthly family-centered formation gathering. Parents catechize children using the Called to Faith textbook covering one unit per month. At the end of each unit, children take an assessment test.

The monthly gatherings provide additional family-centered catechesis based on a theme that is carried throughout the year. Each gathering involves a prayer, catechesis, snack, activity and service component. A Family PSR Core team plans each gathering while other families collaboratively facilitate the gatherings using the gifts of the family. Families will be expected to help in the form of hospitality, facilitating, role-playing, creating, teaching, celebrating, praying, caring and sharing.

Register here for Faith Formation programs.

Parents - The First Catechists

We will have a slightly different format this year.  We will have an activity waiting for you at your table.  When you arrive, you and your children can begin working on this activity.  Since parents are the first and main catechists for their children, we are going to do more family led activities, where you as parents are teaching your children.  We will then have our break out sessions, followed by snack and another family activity.  We will also be sitting in groups this year so we can all get to know each other a little better!




Please be sure to have the following with you at EACH SESSION. Because we meet once a month, it is very important that we have what we need so that we can start on time and get the most out of every session together!


1.Catholic Family Connections Bible

2. Be My Disciples Textbook

3. Art Box FOR EACH CHILD that includes: pencils, crayons or colored pencils, scissors and a glue stick.

4. Stapler - one per family
