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.
