PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGION Mission Statement and Philosophy We are brothers and sisters united
with him as Our Lady of Providence Parish Family. Because of God's
presence among us and within us,all our efforts are channeled to
build up the Body of Christ in our parish family, the community
in which we live, our archdiocese and the world. We are living examples
of the Gospel alive in Jesus to help celebrate each other's joys
and share each other's burdens, to be at peace with one another
andreconcile when the need presents itself.
To achieve this purpose, the Parish School of Religion takes as
its model the four goals established by the document "To Teach
As Jesus Did:"
1. MESSAGE We will strive
to teach the message of Jesus through weekly religious education
of those children in our parish who attend public or non-religious
schools. We will do all in our power to make Jesus come alive
for the children in their daily lives and to foster situations
where families can do this.
2. COMMUNITY We will strive
to build community within our individual class-rooms and within
the entire PSR. We will foster communication and cooperation with
the OLP day school through shared projects, sacramental preparation
and reception, and also involvement in parish activities.
3. SERVICE We will promote
service to others in our classroom instruction and offer opportunities
for the children to serve the parish as well as the larger parish
4. WORSHIP We offer opportunities
for the children to participate in prayer, song, liturgy and sacrament.
We will encourage them to incorporate such forms of worship into
their daily lives. We will strive to meet these goals through
instruction, example and practice at all levels and in all facets
of the Parish School of Religion.
The Parish School of Religion
begins the First Monday in September following Labor Day. Classes run
on most Monday evenings during the regular school year. Classes run from 6:45 to 8 pm. A Paris School of Religion Calendar and Hand book are given out on the first night of PSR which
