Parish School of Religion


The Saint Rita Parish School of Religion (PSR) addresses the needs of students as they grow in their faith. We offer programs that help children to:

  • know the Lord
  • grow in their Catholic Faith
  • participate in the life of the parish community

The program is also designed to help parents to:

  • be the first educators of their children in the life of the Church
  • prepare their children for the reception of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation
