The goal of our religious education department is to provide the best support possible to all families to be able to know, share and live our faith. It is with this in mind that we have made some significant changes to our programs for next year. All families with children currently registered in PSR (Preschool through 8th Grade) will be receiving an email with details about all of next year’s programming. At this time, we want to bring to your attention the following general changes:
Our child-centered Elementary PSR program will be replaced with an Integrated PSR model:
Integrated PSR will be for children ages Kindergarten through 6th Grade.
Children will meet bi-monthly for a catechist-led session.
In addition, there will be self-paced, at-home instruction that includes parent formation and activities for both the family and child.
GIFT will continue meeting once a month on Sunday mornings and has been expanded to include children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade. We are also considering a Wednesday evening option based on interest.
Middle School EDGE
The EDGE program will be for 7th and 8th Grade youth only and will meet twice a month, on alternate weeks from the Kindergarten through 6th Grade Integrated PSR sessions. Both 7th and 8th grade EDGE will be required for Confirmation preparation.
First Reconciliation and First Communion
Preparation will continue with the current structure.
