PSR Catechist Biographies

 

Welcome to PSR!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Church of the Magdalen Parish School of Religion (PSR). Our PSR program provides Catholic religious education in a classroom setting on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Please review the PSR Calendar below for PSR session information. Teaching the Catholic Faith to our children comes from many sources within the parish life. These sources include Sunday Mass, prayer, and living a Catholic way of life in the home. We look forward to working with you and forming a strong partnership with all parents of our children.

Our first PSR Session and mandatory Parent Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 10th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. After introducing our Catechists to our PSR parents and children, the children will go to their classrooms with their Catechists. Parents will then have the opportunity to receive information and ask questions about the PSR program.

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 10th at 6:30pm. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Please pray for our PSR Catechists as they prepare for an awesome year!

May God bless your families,

Michelle Pickert, MTS

Magdalen High School Confirmation Program

Church of the Magdalen 1:8 Confirmation Program

"But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my
witnesses
in Jerusalem, throughout
Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8

Dear Parish Families,

Welcome to the Church of the Magdalen Confirmation Preparation. We are excited to journey with your family and your teen towards the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is truly a special time of spiritual formation for your teen, one that we hope will strengthen your entire family.

What exactly happens at the Sacrament of Confirmation?
"They (the baptized) are more perfectly bound to the Church by the sacrament of Confirmation, and the Holy Spirit endows them with special strength so that they are more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith, both by word and by deed, as true witnesses of Christ." -Second Vatican Council Lumen Gentium #11.

A Message to Teens: Are you in High School? Have you thought about preparing for the Sacrament of Confession? If so, then we want to invite you to our 1:8 Confirmation Preparation Sessions which will begin in October.  To get more information please go to our Confirmation Sign Up page, fill out your information and we will email you a letter that describes the basics of the program as well as a registration form. Once you have received the letter and registration form, fill it out and bring it with you and one parent to our Information Meeting on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 at 7:00pm in the Parish Hall.

Parents, as you continue ministering to your family, your parish and the community, we ask you to be especially faithful in these areas:

*Attend Sunday Liturgy and Holy Days of Obligation

*Support a parish ministry with the gift of your time

*Be true to the Biblical call to tithe

In addition to worshiping at the Church of the Magdalen, your family has the opportunity to give your time, talent and treasure to the many ministries this faith community has to offer. Opportunities to participate are not restricted to Youth Ministry or Confirmation, but include all parish ministries such as Adult Faith Formation, RCIA, Religious Education, to name a few. It is your example that will have the greatest impact on the faith of your child.


In His Service,

Rev. Samuel Brand                          Chris Roth

Associate Pastor                              Director of Youth Ministry
