Holy Spirit PSR & Youth Group Activities

PSR 2019-2020
It has been determined that PSR will remain onsite next year throughout the construction. To allow us to do so, grades Pre-K through 4 will meet weekly on Sundays from 9:35 - 10:50 am. Grades 5 - 8 will meet less often on Sundays from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. High school times will vary. PSR Registration forms for the 2019 - 2020 school year have been mailed to families whose children are currently registered in the program. Anyone who does not receive the forms or is not currently registered, should contact the parish office.

PSR REGISTRATIONS ARE PAST DUE!
We mailed families registered at the parish that have children of catechetical age information on how to register for faith formation in the coming year. Please call the parish office if you still need a registration form and turn them in as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Kasza.

PARENTS OF FIRST GRADE CHILDREN
In order to provide children proper formation and preparation for the Sacrament of First Eucharist in the second grade, parents should ensure their children are registered for PSR at least by first grade. This is in compliance with diocesan policy.

Do you want to hear some of the best Catholic speakers, singers and performers? Do you want to spend time in prayer with your peers? If so, NCYC is for you.
