PSR: Parish School of Religion


The Parish School of Religion (PSR) aids families in the faith formation of your children. We are grateful to be in partnership with your children's education and faith formation.

  1. Our PSR Program Values the Centrality of the Eucharist.
  2. Our PSR Program Values Holistic Development of the Person.
  3. Our PSR Program Values Stewardship as a Way of Life.

The Second Vatican Council and our parish’s Mission Statement affirm that: “The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit’ of the Christian life.” All of our faith life, service and relationships are centered on the Eucharist. As Catholics, weekly Mass attendance is essential to the growth and development of our faith.

Our Religious Education Programs are extensions of the Mass, where we are trained in deeper elements of the faith. In other words, the Mass is the classroom and PSR attendance is the homework.


PSR Program Options


Grades K–5, Monday OR Tuesday Afternoon 3:45 – 5:15 p.m.
Grades 6-8, Sunday Morning 9:15 – 10:45 a.m. OR Monday Evening 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Bus transportation is provided to the parish for Aurora City School children who attend these after school programs. All other school system students are welcome, but must provide their own transportation.

Grades K–8 Family Program

In the event that families home-school their children in faith formation all families in the program gather four Sundays during the school year after the 11 a.m. Mass for a meal and activities. Students in this program receive their textbooks at the first session which are completed at home in the family environment.

Grades 9-12 Youth Ministry, every Sunday after the 11:00 a.m. Mass

This program combines faith sharing, social and service projects, retreats and prayer.

Diocesan Sacramental Policy states that students must participate in consecutive religious education classes in order to be presented for celebration and reception of the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.

For more information on any of these programs, please contact either the Director of Religious Education, the PSR Coordinator, or the Youth Minister.

 ****Religious Education Registration Packets for families in the program last year will be available in the Parish Office during regular office hours.  Registrations are due August 15 for the reduced fees option***
