PSR Mission Statement:

Our Mission is to provide students with an education of our Catholic faith in a faith filled environment by our teachers in collaboration with their families and our parish community.  We will guide our students to a greater understanding of the love God has for us and His ability to forgive. As we prepare them for receiving the sacraments, we will be inviting our students into a deeper relationship with God.  We will attain these goals through proclaiming the message of Jesus, being of service to others, maintaining a strong faith community and by worshiping in ways that enable us to live our faith.

WHY:

Faith education is education that lasts an eternity. All parents wish to give their children the best in life. We love our children to the “moon and back”, why not love them to “heaven and back”. Giving our children faith education helps them learn how to open their hearts to accept God’s unconditional love, to listen to God speak in the quiet of their heart and to soak up the abundant graces God gives us to help us persevere through challenges and to celebrate joy in this life.
