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 contact the parish office. 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.


Confirmation, 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. For questions about the Sacred Heart Confirmation program, please contact Christie Jung for questions at 573-392-5390.
