Parish School of Religion (PSR)

“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

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 1 – 8 meet on Sunday mornings from 8:40am-10:10am at Lake Catholic High School. Classes meet from September through April. PSR Calendar 2019 -2020

To register, download the PSR Registration Form for new students or returning students or stop by or call the Faith Formation Office to register. 

Home Study is available for those with a special circumstance. Contact Laura McBride in the Faith Formation Office to learn if this option is available for your child.
