Parish School of Religion

 

The Saint Rita Parish School of Religion (PSR) address 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
  • Assist parents who are the first educators of their children in the life of the Church
  • Assist parents in preparing the children for the reception of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation

If you would like to serve as a PSR catechist, please sign up here!

Registration is now open for the 2021-2022 PSR school year! It is imperative that you register your family as soon as possible so the Pastoral Staff can plan the best religious education for your child. Due to the needs of our parish community, we are offering three options for students in grades K-6. Your cooperation in registering as soon as possible will allow for us to plan accordingly for each session next year. Please Register Here!
