Mary Queen of Peace Parish offers Catholic religious education classes for students in grades 1 - 8 who do not attend Catholic school. The Parish School of Religion (PSR) holds classes for 1st - 3rd grades on Tuesdays from 4:20 - 5:30 PM (afternoon session), and classes for all grades 1 - 8 on Tuesdays from 6:45 - 8:00 PM (evening session). The PSR school year runs from September - May, with breaks for holidays and spring break week.
PSR also offers Confirmation preparation classes for 8th grade parishioners who attend a private Catholic school. These classes meet once a month on Sunday evenings from August - April.
The PSR Advisory Committee is made up of parents and catechists who provide support and help determine goals for the program each year. This committee meets once a month during the PSR term. All interested members should contact the Director of the PSR program.
Mary Queen of Peace Parish School of Religion is committed to assisting parents in their role as the primary educators in the faith formation of their children. The catechists and staff support the parents by providing a positive learning environment for students to develop knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Faith and to apply Christ’s message in their daily life. The PSR community aids both parent and child in fulfilling and growing in their commitment to the Catholic Church through participation in liturgy, the sacramental life of the church, daily prayer, friendship, and stewardship.
