Religious Education

Religious Education, also known as Parish School of Religion (PSR), is offered for students in Grades 1 - 8. This program helps prepare children for an enriching life in the Catholic faith. We offer in-class programs that take place at Saint Rose, and also programs for home school families (see information below). We also offer programs for younger children on Sundays (see the 'Sunday Formation' section below).

Note: If your child will be preparing to make a sacrament this year (First Holy Communion, usually Grade 2, or Confirmation, usually Grade 8) an additional retreat is required. This retreat will cost $50, and will be applied to your registration fees. If you have any questions, please contact Patty Russo at russo@saintroseonline.org.

Volunteer Opportunities

It takes a parish to raise a child in the ways of faith! We are always in need of practicing Catholics to serve as faith-filled witnesses to the faith and serve as catechists for our various programs. Could the Lord be calling you to grow in your own faith by serving as a catechist in one of our programs? Catechists are needed for the weekly classes on Monday and Tuesday as well as for our Sunday morning programs. Please contact Patty Russo for information on how to get involved!


Sunday Formation

On Sundays during the Fall and Spring we also offer Sunday School for ages 3 to 5, and Liturgy of the Word for children in Grades 1 to 4.
