PSR Classes
PSR classes for students in grades 1-8 are offered on both Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:30) and Sunday mornings (10:10-11:10) from September to May. Preschool and Kindergarten classes meet Sunday mornings during the 9:00 and 11:15 Masses, September to May.

 

First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
Second grade public school students prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion in their weekly classes during regular PSR time. Catholic school students receive preparation at school and also attend certain classes together with public school students during the year. Parents attend special meetings and activities with their children. They also work with their children at home.

We offer a class that meets Wednesday evenings to prepare older students who have not yet celebrated the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

 

Confirmation Program
Confirmation One – Grade 7 or older students not enrolled in a Catholic school attend classes during regular PSR times on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning. Catholic school students also attend special sessions during their first year of Confirmation preparation.

Confirmation Two – Grade 8 or older students (including those enrolled in a Catholic school) attend weekly classes on Sunday or Wednesday from September until Confirmation is celebrated.
