Our first day of PSR is Monday, September 10, 2018!
On behalf of the Religious Education Office and the Parish School of Religion at Holy Infant Catholic Church, we welcome you!
Holy Infant Parish School of Religion seeks to form young disciples to carry on Jesus’ mission through teachings rooted in scripture and faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Content embraces the four pillars of the catechism: Creed, Liturgy and Sacraments, moral life, and prayer. Parents, families, and the whole parish are involved through participation in prayer and activities that integrate lessons with life.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
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.
Please stop by our office or call for an appointment.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the
kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Welcome to the 2018-2019 PSR school year at Holy Infant Parish. We look forward to working closely with you to help provide a Christ-filled school year for all the PSR students of the parish. Please know that 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 attempts to balance the religious instruction (message) with the experiences of Catholic community, service, and worship throughout the year. It attempts to meet the needs and understanding of all children and families, recognizing that there are varying degrees of catechetical background, understanding, and experiences.
We strive to inform our children and families in the basics of the Catholic faith; assist the parents in forming the children’s ongoing spiritual development; and finally, to be 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.
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.
