Parish School of Religion (PSR) Program

PSR provides for the religious instruction of the youth of our parish.  Classes begin the week of 4 October 2020 using a hybrid of in-person and hybrid gatherings: grades 1-6 meet on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00–5:10pm; classes for grades 7, 8, and Confirmation meeting on Sunday from 9:15-10:15.  Grades 1-6 use the “We Believe” book series that is published by William Sadlier, Inc.  → the Catholic Identity edition; those in grades 7, 8, and the Confirmation Formation Program use the “Decision Point” series that is published by Matthew Kelly.

Registration for the 2020-2021 PSR year is finally underway. If your child was enrolled in the St. Patrick PSR program for the 2019-2020 academic year, you should already have received a PRE-PRINTED registration form that should be reviewed, updated, and returned with the PSR fee.  Anyone who is new to the program for the 2020-2021 academic year (or anyone wishing to register an additional child) should complete a registration form by clicking the graphic to the right.

Students in the second grade receive preparation for the Sacraments of both Reconciliation as well as Eucharist*.   High school students who feel themselves ready to embrace the Sacrament of Confirmation participate in the Confirmation Formation Program during their 9th grade year*.

*  In order for a student to be eligible to participate in sacramental preparation, they must have participated in the PSR program during the year PRIOR to the academic year during which they desire to receive the sacrament.  (eg. 1st grade PSR is a pre-requisite for entering the First Penance/Eucharist program in 2nd grade; 8th grade PSR is a foundational year and required of those wishing to enter into the Confirmation Formation program.)

If you have a child to be enrolled, or you desire to be PSR Teacher, contact Anne Linden (for grades 1-6) or Wendy Shivak (grades 7, 8, and Confirmation) at 440-647-4375 x24 (Both Anne and Wendy share the same extension).

When full details of the 2020-2021 PSR program are realized, a schedule of class dates will be posted below.
