Parish School of Religion (PSR)

Registration for the 2023-2024 PSR is now open! Read this page for full details and click the blue circle on this page to begin your registration.

The Parish School of Religion program is designed for families that are looking for Catholic religious education for their children. Most of our PSR families are enrolled in public schools or homeschool their children. This family-based catechesis program is available as support to you, as the first educators of your children, and is designed to help your family grow in their relationship with God and in the knowledge and practice of your Roman Catholic faith.

All families are encouraged to attend 8:30 Mass on Sunday morning, and join together in fellowship and a family activity immediately after Mass in the school cafeteria on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month.

Children ages 3-9 (preschool-grade 2) will be instructed weekly in our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) atrium in the Parish Office building following fellowship. Priority to register on Sunday mornings will be given to those families with older children in PSR classes. Otherwise, children are encouraged to attend parish sessions which are held on weekday evenings. Please visit the CGS page for more information regarding the weekday sessions. Children preparing for FIRST RECONCILIATION and FIRST EUCHARIST will prepare in our CGS Level 2 atrium over a span of two years before receiving these Sacraments. Use the link on this page to find detailed information regarding CGS options at St. Ignatius.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd has two levels: Level 1 for 3-6 year olds, and Level 2 for 6-9 year olds. All sessions on Sundays will begin at 10am, but will end at differing times throughout the year to allow children to increase their time in contemplation and work. Please see the chart below that explains the ending times:

Sunday CGS Schedule

Level 1:
10-11am • September
10-11:15am • October – November
10- 11:30am • December – May


Level 2:

Children ages 10+ (grades 3+) will have sessions with catechists following fellowship on the 2nd and 4th Sundays. Family Catechesis will occur on the 3rd Sundays, and is designed for parents and these older children. This catechesis will occur from 10-11:30, while younger children are in the CGS atrium. Children preparing for the SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION prepare in a two year program, as well.
