Parish School of Religion

Children in a religious program

Registration for the 2021/22 PSR Program is now open!

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish School of Religion is for all children of our parish in Pre-K through 8th grade who are not enrolled in our preschool or school. 

All classes meet on Sunday mornings. Families can choose which session time works best for their schedule. Both sessions immediately follow a Mass to allow your family time to attend Mass together and then send the kids to PSR.

Session 1:  9-10:30am
Session 2: 11am-12:30pm 

All classes are multi-age and are divided into four levels.

Level 1 – students in PreK and Kindergarten
Level 2 – students in grades 1-3
Level 3 – students in grades 4-6
Level 4 – Middle School – students in grades 7 and 8

Remember that Faith Formation is not simply sacramental formation. Continuity of faith formation is integral to embracing the Catholic faith and growing in relationship with Christ. It is important that students have uninterrupted grade participation in faith formation, not just participation during those years viewed as sacramental. Any child that has not had successive grade attendance may need to spend additional time in formation prior to being assigned to a class. If your child has had interrupted attendance, please contact the parish office so we can discuss how to best meet the needs of your family.
In addition, our formation programs for the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation are TWO YEARS each. Therefore, students must participate in 1st grade PSR to celebrate First Communion in 2nd grade. Likewise, students must participate in 7th grade to be Confirmed in 8th grade. 

PSR Tuition:

The tuition for PSR is $150 per child and is due at the time of registration. However, you may also choose to pay a $50 per family, non-refundable, registration fee today and set up eight (8) monthly EFT withdrawals for September 2021 – April 2022.

Sacramental Fee for those intending to prepare for final formation for
First Communion:
$25.00/child
Confirmation: $50.00/child

If your family is experiencing financial difficulties, please contact the parish office at 614-875-3322 or Mrs. Dilley at jdilley@ourladygc.org to discuss scholarship opportunities prior to registering.
