The 2021-2022 PSR and Confirmation Classes will begin Sunday, Sept. 19, and Wednesday, Sept. 22. While we hope children will attend on-site classes, there is also an option on the registration form to indicate if you prefer to receive materials to teach your child at home.

PSR classes for students in grades Kindergarten (new this year!) through 8th are offered on both Sunday mornings (10:10-11:10 a.m.) and Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:30 p.m.) from September to May. Preschool classes meet Sunday mornings during the 9 and 11:15 a.m. 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 Baptism, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.
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.

Students in 4th grade or older who are interested in becoming altar servers may contact the Office of Religious Education for information. Usually, altar servers' training occurs in February. Training will be available this fall, 2021, since we were unable to have training during COVID.
