Preschool of Religion (PSR) is a God-readiness program for children ages three (3) through Kindergarten (5). Sessions are held on Sunday mornings during the 9:00am Mass. PSR begins mid-September and continues through May.
In PSR, the young child is initiated into the faith community and into liturgical calendar using experiences that are age appropriate. The lessons have been developed by the PSR directors and catechists through the fourt years of the program. Resources for the lessons include the Loyola Press text Exploring Faith Through Art, Our Sunday Visitor's Allelu, a theme-based text called the Winston Early Childhood series, Play Ways to God, and a lectionary-based catechetical program published by Resource Publications titled God with Us.
The curriculum is supplemented by theme-based picture books, presentations by our parish priests, felt storytelling boards, singing, crafts, videos and Puppet Theater.
