Welcome to St. Patrick Parish School of Religion (P.S.R.) – Every child deserves the best Catholic education possible. For those children who attend public schools, St. Patrick Parish offers the Parish School of Religion (PSR) for children in Grades K-8.
We look forward to serving you as you and your child/children journey in your faith. All families are welcome to join PSR! For 2020/2021 school year, classes are one day per week, Sundays 9:40 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. Classes begin September 13, 2020 and continue until May 2, 2021.
Registration for the 2020/2021 school year opens June 1st. Registration can now be done online. See the Download forms section for the link or click the button below. You can also pay your registration fees online now by visiting the homepage and clicking on the Give Now Button.
The curriculum presents the teachings of the Catholic Church in age-appropriate materials. In addition to religious education in the Ten Commandments, Sacraments, Bible, morality, prayer, liturgy and building a personal relationship with God, the PSR classes provide sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade.
While the faculty and staff strive to teach the faith to our parish children, there are time limitations with PSR. Therefore, home study and parental involvement and encouragement are necessary for the children to learn and grow in their faith.
Class sizes are small so each catechist gets to know their students. Early registration is appreciated so we can order materials accurately. Registration for the 2020/2021 year is due on August 1, 2020. For those who register before the due date a $5.00 discount is being offered.
New families: We welcome all new families to PSR. Please contact Carol Wallington, Director of Religious Education (DRE), if you have questions. You may call 330-677-4453.
Tuition No child will be denied a Catholic education because of an inability to pay every family should do what they can. Special tuition arrangements can be made with the Director of Religious Education. Please talk to us so we may help you.
The tuition rates for the 2020-2021 will be:
One Child: $35.00
Two or More Children: $60.00
The catechist creates a loving, caring and enthusiastic atmosphere where God’s presence can be felt and the experience of God shared. It is believed that the power of God is experienced through common everyday experiences. The child’s experiences are related to the life of Christ and the Catholic Church in the classroom setting, but more importantly, to the home. Together we bring Christ to fullness and unity as we join in building God’s world.
