Students must have ongoing Archdiocesan approved Religious Education in the 2nd grade for First Eucharist and Confirmation in the 8th grade. Our Lady School of Religion seeks to assist parents in their role as primary educators in preparing their children to hear and live the teaching of Christ as embodied in our Catholic tradition and to grow in loving relationship with God and others.
Classes are held each Wednesday (excluding holidays) from 6:45 p. m. to 8:00 p.m. in our school building. Registration is held in April and May before the closing of the PSR school year.
