Faith Formation : Parish School of Religion (PSR)

 

Welcome to the St. Mary Parish School of Religion webpage! 

The Parish School of Religion (PSR) mission is to assist parents in the religious education and spiritual formation of their children. Our program is committed to the spiritual development of students in the parish (K-8th grade) who attend non-parochial schools.  We are excited to transmit the message of Jesus Christ to the families who participate in our program!

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

 PSR offers a program this year for 3 -5 year olds. The program is called the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and is based on the Montessori method. I am very excited about offering this great program here at St. Mary's. We will have 2 trained catechist (90 hours training) available to launch the program.  We will need a lot of help getting our atrium furnished.  We will also need some 3 - 5 year olds, so if you know anyone who may be interested in the program please let them know about it.  Please see the link below and also go to the web site  www.cgsusa.org. If you have questions please call or email Maria Vonada (369-8228, mvonada@delawarestmary.org
 
For more information go to the link below to view a video from a parish in Long Island, St. Margaret of Scotland, where the priest himself is the catechist and formation leader. The video is a nice introduction to the program.
