As members of the Lord’s Body here on earth, all of us play an important role in the faith formation of our children. While the primary responsibility is in the hands of the parents, St. Joseph Parish School of Religion program is here to assist you in every way possible to ensure that your children have every opportunity to grow to a mature faith in God, and an understanding of our Catholic faith.
The Saint Joseph Parish School of Religion works to assist parents in their role as the primary educators of faith for their children. As we catechize the children of our Parish in the Gospel Message and the truths our Catholic faith, we offer opportunities for full, active participation through prayer, Word, Sacrament, and service to help them grow in faith in and in their relationship with God.
The PSR school year begins September and ends in May. Saint Joseph PSR will begin with at home instruction, with monthly ZOOM meetings for students and families. This option allows catechists to present students information so they can complete lessons outside of an online learning platform. At home lessons will include faith formation packets (virtual or paper-based) and appropriate hands on activities. There will be scheduled “PSR Packet pick up" events where families can get materials, with a small, family friendly activity that they can do on premise (with sanitation and social distancing) or can be taken home.
Tuition is $50.00 per child.
Should Saint Joseph PSR return to in-person instruction in the second half of the year, classes for children in grades kindergarten through eight meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:45 PM. There will also be dates and times where parents and families will have sessions together. Parents can still choose at home learning for their child for the second half of the year. PSR Packet pick up dates will still be scheduled.
