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!

The St Mary Parish School of Religion is in full swing now.  The kids are learning about and forming a relationship with God.  We are so excited to see them all at Mass with their families learning about the culture of being Catholic.  The Eucharist is the most important event of your entire week.  Do not let them miss how important God’s sacrifice is for all of us.

 

Have you been showing your children the tweets from the Pope?  He is such a prayerful man.  Let them see him online.  You can even show them him on youtube.  They would love to see him.

 

Please pray for the Confirmation students, their families and their sponsors.  They will be on retreat over the next few weekends. 

 

We will be announcing the parent meetings for First Communion so watch your email.  

Peace be with you,

The Parish School of Religion team of teachers

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 Ann Manning (369-8228, amanning@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.
