Parish School of Religion (PSR)
Parish School of Religion (PSR)
The St. Justin Martyr Parish School of Religion (PSR) is at the service of parents, assisting them with the important task of teaching the Catholic Faith to their children who attend public school. The goal of PSR is to form children as disciples of Jesus by developing their understanding of Christian doctrine, encouraging a Christian moral life, participating in liturgical worship and personal prayer, and orienting them to service.
Due to health concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus, there will be two options for your child to participate in PSR. 1) “In-person” classes, following the health and safety guidelines utilized by the Willoughby-Eastlake School District, and 2) “Parent and Me” homeschool. Both options will be free of charge to St. Justin Martyr parishioners.
“In-person” classes will take place at the school building on Monday evenings between 7:00 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. The first day of class will be September 14. A description of health and safety measures the program will use along with student/parent expectations is found in the registration form.
The “Parent and Me” option will be parent guided at-home learning using a textbook with the assistance of a PSR teacher. Parents will be provided a free PSR textbook and will be able to interact with teachers through Google Classroom, telephone and/or email. Additional online resources will be available, also.
The teaching staff is comprised of adult volunteers who are called to share their faith with the youngsters of the SJM parish community. We are extremely blessed with this dedicated group of parishioners, many of whom have been sharing their time and faith for an impressive number of years.
