Parish School of Religion (PSR) Program

PSR provides for the religious instruction of the youth of our parish.  Classes begin the week of 10 September 2023.  Grades 1-6 meet on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00–5:10pm (starting on 9/13/2023), and; classes for grades 7, 8, and Confirmation meet on Sunday from 9:15-10:15 (starting on 9/10/2023).  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 2023-2024 PSR year is not yet underway. If your child was enrolled in the St. Patrick PSR program for the 2022-2023 academic year, you should  receive 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 2023-2024 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.)
