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 K – 8 meet on Sunday mornings from 8:40am-10:10am at Lake Catholic High School. Classes meet from September through March.
Classes have begun you can still register your children in grades K-8 in PSR 2022-2023. You may use the online payment feature to pay your fees after you submit the online registration form. Please call the Faith Formation Office if you have any questions at 440.255.0600 or email Connie Frustere or Mandy Hart – Director of Faith Formation.
