Parish School of Religion (PSR)

The Parish School of Religion provides formal religious instruction and formation for the children of St. John Vianney who do not attend a Catholic day school. The program seeks to form the children into faithful Disciples of Christ. The program hopes to encourage participants to have a personal relationship with Jesus, a love of the scriptures, an understanding of the creed, an ability to make a good moral decision, active participation in the sacramental life of the church and a desire to perform Christian service.

Grades K – 8 meet on Sunday mornings from 8:40am-10:10am at Lake Catholic High School. Classes meet from September through March.

We will kick off our year on September 10th at Lake Catholic. On that day, there will be a Parent Meeting at 9:00 am in the auditorium and at the conclusion of the meeting you will be able to pick your children up early.

Please remember that each child in grades K-8 must be walked to class by a parent and picked up from class by a parent. We will not let children enter or exit without a parent.

“And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed?”  -Romans 10, 14
