Textbook Series: Finding God
We will be using the series Finding God from Loyola Press next year for both our Home Study (Grades 1 – 8) and Classroom (Grades 1 – 6) formation. Individual meetings will be held for parents who are new to PSR, classroom or home study. For more information visit: http://www.loyolapress.com/finding-god-2013.htm
Junior High PSR
Jr. High students (7th & 8th grade) will be using the textbook series Finding God from Loyola Press. This faith formation includes more hands-on activities, including service, and a discussion-based community.
(7th & 8th grade students may also sign up for Home Study using the Finding God Series.)
Home Study This option is available to families of children, grades 1 – 8, using the Finding God text book series. The time frame for home study is the same as class room study: Sept – April. In addition there will be five Sunday afternoon gatherings throughout the year to review each of the five units of study, as well as giving families an opportunity to reflect and dialogue with other home study families.
Generations of Faith
A great success over the years, Generations of Faith gatherings will occur twice next year (Fall: Oct. 8 & 9 2019 and Spring: Feb. 18 & 19, 2020). All families in PSR, Grades 1 - 8 (classroom study & home study) are required to participate one night in the Fall and one night in the Spring.
