September 2019

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 during the school year on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm for public school students in grades K-12.

Our first PSR Session and Parent Meeting will be on Wednesday, September 11th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the Parish Hall. Parents and Catechists will receive a special priestly blessing. After introducing our Catechists, your children will go to their classrooms and the parent meeting will begin to review the program and provide an opportunity to ask questions.

Please register online at by clicking on the banner on the main page or by selecting the Faith Formation Menu and then PSR.

The PSR calendar for 2019-20 is on the back of this letter and is published at The PSR Family Handbook can also be downloaded there as a PDF.

Teaching the Catholic Faith to our children comes from many sources within parish life, including Sunday Mass, individual and family prayer, and living a Catholic way of life in the home. As parents, we are the primary teachers of the Faith to our children and our PSR catechists are blessed and excited to support your efforts.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30pm. Please contact us with any questions and pray for our Catechists as they prepare for this year!

May God bless your families and may grace and peace be yours in abundance!
