REGISTRATION INFORMATION LETTER
Welcome to Holy Infant’s Parish School of Religion!
The Parish School of Religion (PSR) is a vibrant, growth-filled program changing annually to meet the needs of its students. The program is designed for the children of our parish who attend schools without formal religious education as part of their curriculum. PSR aims to educate and form these students in our faith including preparing them for the reception of sacraments as well as deepening and reinforcing knowledge of their religion and values for living. Parents are reminded that they are the primary educators of their children in the ways of faith. The PSR faculty, consisting of parent volunteers and Holy Infant staff, is there to help them fulfill this responsibility.
We look forward to working closely with every family to help provide a Christ-filled school year for all students of the parish who attend public school. As parents you are invaluable to this program. We recognize that you are the first teachers of your children and that no one knows them better or loves them more than you do. It is our goal, therefore, to work with you to support the faith formation of your child.
Our PSR program balances religious instruction with the experiences of Catholic community, service, and worship throughout the year. We strive to meet the needs and understanding of all children and families, recognizing that there are varying degrees of catechetical background, understanding, and experiences.
All children want to know that there’s a God out there who hears, understands, and loves them and they want to know that we as a Church listen, understand, and love them as well, and are eager to accompany them on their journey of faith. We strive to educate our children and families in the Catholic faith; assist parents in forming their children’s ongoing spiritual development; and finally, being an instrument in transforming these children into Catholic Christian citizens with a strong faith on which to base their future spiritual growth, and to enable them to be evangelizers to the communities in which they will live. All that is accomplished by the grace of the Holy Spirit.
Parish School of Religion Registration Fees
We do charge a fee in order to provide the best catechetical program for your children, but we must stress that we want all children to be able to avail themselves of a religious education so scholarships or payment plans will be available to help parents who may be struggling financially.
