“You will be the first teachers of your child in the ways of the faith. May you also be the best of teachers, bearing witness to the faith by what you say and do in Christ Jesus the Lord.”
–Rite of Baptism
Thank you for your interest in our Parish School of Religion program for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 who attend public schools or who are home-schooled.
We welcome you and offer a program of religious instruction & formation in the Catholic faith. Classes are in session during the school year on Wednesdays from 6:45pm to 8:00pm.
We have a great team of Catechists who come and share the love of Christ each Wednesday evening to serve, pray with, and teach our children. They bring with them years of experience, a heart full of love, and passion for their faith to our students.
We strive for complete intimacy and communion with Jesus Christ.
If you wish to enroll or re-enroll your child/teen, please contact the Director or use the enrollment forms on the right side.

P.S. PSR is intended to be a nine-year process. So attendance is presumed for all nine years. To skip any year is to miss an important segment of the total picture. There are also special sessions for parents along the way. For sure, two years of preparation is required of children before First Confession and First Communion. For sure, preparation for Confirmation requires at least two years of class participation.
St. Monica PSR Philosophy and Mission Statement
St. Monica Parish School of Religion (PSR) is a Catholic community empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Sacraments, and Prayer. We are called to grow in Catholic faith and love, to proclaim the Gospel values, and to minister to the St. Monica Parish family. We continue our apostolic mission to spread the Good News and to follow our baptismal call to be the Body of Christ.
Our vision is faith filled. Faith is a gift from God which grows and develops throughout our life journey. As a people of faith we look at our actions, both in our Parish Community and in the world, in a different way than people who are not. We assist our children and their parents to understand our Catholic Faith and nurture them in their faith. St. Monica PSR is dedicated to providing resources and opportunities for families to learn, celebrate, and grow in our Catholic Faith.
