St. Michael’s Parish School of Religion (PSR) Program is for the children of our parish, grades Pre-k through 8, who attend public school but would like to receive religious formation classes and prepare to receive the sacraments. Our classes follow a typical school calendar year (September through May), and meet on Sunday evenings in the St. Michael school building. Students receive instruction based on the Diocesan Religion Course of Study, and are catechized in an age appropriate way by volunteer teachers. The typical sacramental sequence at our parish allows students the opportunity to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade. The option for home study is offered on a case by case basis, per approval of the Director of Religious Education, and is not available for 1st, 2nd, 7th and 8th grade, due to the immediate sacramental preparation in those grade levels.
We seek to be a welcoming parish and strive to work with the families to meet the needs of every student enrolled. For families with children who are older and who have not yet received religious instruction, classes will be organized according to the needs of the students each year, with instruction on the fundamentals of our faith and specific sacramental preparation. These classes – Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) begin in the fall and are offered as needed. Parents interested in enrolling their children in RCIC classes should speak to the Director of Religious Education directly by calling 614-888-5384 or emailing [email protected] and will be instructed to fill out registration paperwork.
PSR classes for 2017-2018 will be held on Sunday evenings from 4:30PM until 5:45PM in the school building.
During the school year on the Sunday’s the PSR classes are held, an evening Mass will be offered directly after PSR at 6PM in the main church, to provide families an opportunity to pray and worship together. *RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children) class times and dates will be determined in the fall based on the needs of the families.
