St. George PSR

St. George Catholic Church PSR


Mission and Staff
Saint George's Parish School of Religion (PSR) provides instruction and formation in the Catholic faith tradition to students attending public and non-Catholic private schools in grades K-8.  Saint George's Parish School of Religion is administered by the Director of Religious Education (DRE), Susan Chorley (573-808-4759). Volunteer catechists generously give of their time to assist parents in educating their children in our faith. 
 
Sacramental Preparation
The School of Religion directs the preparation programs for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation for all parish children. First Reconciliation and First Communion occur in 2nd grade
Children must be prepared to receive First Reconciliation before preparation for First Eucharist may begin. The class, when ready will be given an opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation on a date for both the St. George School and PSR classes. The parent and child along with the pastor/pastoral administrator will make a determination when the child is ready to receive Reconciliation and/or Eucharist. Canon Law states that once the necessary catechesis is completed and the person has an adequate understanding of the sacrament of Reconciliation and/or Eucharist, no one shall be deprived of the right to receive these sacraments once he/she expresses a desire for it.
 
Registration and Enrollment
Any family that is registered in St. George parish may enroll their children in the catechetical program. In order for their children to be admitted the family must complete the registration and student information forms and indicate that they have read and accept the policies contained in this handbook.
