We are called in many different ways to serve the Lord. You have been called to be a parent and the parish supports the parents’ responsibility as the primary educators of their children. Your participation in the life of the parish, Sunday Mass, service to others and dedication to daily prayer demonstrates the authenticity of your profession of faith. Catechetical leaders (PSR teachers) will support and encourage you as you carry out the role as the primary educator of the faith. As parents you are the most influential agents of catechesis for your children. The catechesis given by parents with the family “precedes, accompanies and enriches all other forms of catechesis” as stated in the National Directory for Catechesis. Our curriculum is based on the Diocese of Columbus Graded Course of study for Religion and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The parish promises to help you, as parents, foster your child/children’s faith, and assist you in the role as a catechist for your child/children whether you assume complete responsibility or look to the Parish School of Religion (PSR) for help and support.
