About Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline™ (VBRD™)

The Archdiocese of St. Louis has supported efforts to pioneer an initiative to address bullying behavior by cultivating the interior qualities of virtue. With Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline™ (VBRD™), adults model kindness and justice toward students, which in turn, supports a culture of trust and respect. Relationships are the highest priority within the school community.

 Most bullying-prevention programs address the negative behavior. Rather than having rules to stop bullying, what if we had guiding principles for integrating habits for human excellence, the virtues, into everyday life? These principles could be beneficial, particularly in addressing conflict and harm caused by bullying behavior.

Parish Schools of Religion

Parish Schools of Religion (PSRs) provide catechetical instruction to children and youth who attend public schools, so that young people can grow in intimacy with Jesus, be knowledgeable about their faith, and integrate the teachings of the Gospel into their lives.  Parish religion programs also prepare young people for the reception of first sacraments.  Over 119 parishes, with over 16,300 PSR students, offer programs to assist parents in the faith formation of their children.
