Parish School of Religion (PSR)
Parish School of Religion Registration for Grades K5-12 will be held in the Stewardship Hall on August 14, 21, 28 & September 4.
Sessions begin Sunday, September 11, from 9:30-10:30 A.M. Textbook fee is $25.00 per student.
One check made payable to Holy Infant of Prague can be written for multiple registrations.
Classes are age appropriate and address developmental stages. Our program starts with God as Creator of all and Jesus as Savior and teacher of our way of life. Through the Loyola series, Christ Our Life, the Bible is presented as God’s living word throughout the curriculum which builds on lessons learned each year. Prayers are assigned for every grade level and memorization is rewarded during the Annual Prayer Challenge in May. Children learn the need for prayer and worship, parts of the Mass, Saints, the Rosary, Sacraments, Apologetics and salvation history. Students in Grades 6-12 are required by Bishop Baker to complete a six week course in Theology of the Body. As Jesus grew in wisdom and grace, His children grow through generous sharing and instruction of volunteer Catechists. Two Catechists are assigned to every class and are required to be certified in Youth Protection 1 through the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama and participate in online courses for continuing education through the Catechetical Institute. Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 am in the Stewardship Hall.
Information is posted on the P.S.R. Bulletin and in the Sunday Bulletin.
Ever thought about serving the youth of the Parish as catechist? It is certainly as rewarding as it can be challenging! Come Fall, we will need additional catechists to fill open positions required to place a lead catechist and assistant in each classroom. Please prayerfully consider if this is an area in which God is calling you to serve contact Terry Pruet at (205) 228-8382.
