PSR & Confirmation Programs

Parish School of Religion (PSR)

The Sacred Heart PSR program meets after Sunday Mass, mid-September through the end of April and includes classes for children Pre-K through Grade 12 (Confirmation). If you have a child or children to register, please get them from the parish office or call Carmen Burton at 392-5334 (office) or 434-1168 (cell). Parish Schools of Religion (PSRs) provide catechetical instruction to children and youth who attend public schools, so that young people can grow in intimacy with Jesus, be knowledgeable about their faith and integrate the teachings of the Gospel into their lives. Parish religion programs also prepare young people for the reception of first Sacraments Reconciliation and the Eucharist. It is a great blessing and joy to help the parents in teaching their children of God’s love for them and God’s plan for their lives of virtue and success. 

PSR/Youth Group/Family Calendar 2017-18

Please note: While we try to adhere to set calendar for all events, dates may change due to weather or other rescheduling needs. We will provide any updates as needed. Especially in winter, should PSR classes needs to be cancelled, parents will be notified in advance.

Sacred Heart high school age youth complete a two-year study to prepare them for the Sacrament of ConfirmationConfirmation, together with Baptism and Eucharist, form the Sacraments of Initiation that are all intimately connected. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is "sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. Contact Christie Jung for questions at 573-392-5390. 

On Wednesday, January 10, Sacred Heart Youth Minister Christie Jung led a parent meeting to make parents and youth aware of upcoming retreats and summer camps, along with upcoming events in our own Parish. Especially for summer programs, Christie needs to know as soon as possible if your child is interested in attending any of these (such as Camp Savio, Camp Bosco, Camp Maccabee, Camp Sienna and Steubenville). She would like to know so she can plan to get forms to parents on time (so you do not miss registration deadlines) and for fundraising planning. Click here for a PDF calendar. For questions, contact Christie Jung at 816-898-0659.
