Parish School of Religion (PSR)

First Confession and First Communion are provided for students enrolled in the 2nd Grade PSR class.  (Students are required to attend and complete the 1st Grade PSR class before they may enroll for the 2nd grade class.)  This class meets in-person at Immaculate Conception on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
Confirmation is provided for students in grades 7 and 8 on "odd" years only due to the smaller class sizes of our PSR program. The next Confirmation will be in the spring of 2021.  Students should be enrolled in PSR in both 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 to be eligible for Confirmation in 2021.  To be Confirmed as part of this PSR program, the student should be enrolled in the Immaculate Conception PSR program for at least one year prior to Confirmation and attend classes regularly during the Confirmation year. (Youth older than 7th-8th grade should contact the Rectory Office or contact the PSR Director, Deacon Michael Burch, to discuss other options for Confirmation if they have not yet been confirmed.)  Students enrolling for 2020-2021 will be in the 7th-8th Grade PSR Confirmation class.   This class meets in-person at Immaculate Conception on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

All other grades will study from home until further notice.  Please read the notice posted below.

Dear PSR Family,

All registered students in the Immaculate Conception Parish School of Religion program will
have access to both a print book and a digital book. Print books may be taken home at the beginning of the 2020-2021 PSR school year by families who will be learning from home, but
please keep in mind that these books will need to be returned to the classroom if and when in-person classroom learning becomes possible again. Our goal is for all students to be able to return to in-person learning at the parish by January 2021. Students who take books home become
responsible for those books and if they are damaged beyond use, lost or stolen, then the
student’s family will be responsible for paying for a replacement book for their student at an
additional $25 cost.

Instructions for Digital Learning:

To access the digital textbook, please visit Loyola Press online at You
can either click on the banner “Welcome Home Schooler” or move down to the menu at the
bottom of the homepage for “Curriculum”, and then choose “Christ Our Life”. Next choose
“Family Resources”. A page called “Family Catechesis Resources” should pop up. Click
where it says “CLICK HERE (at the end of the first line, “If your parish is participating in
Christ Our Life Family Catechesis-CLICK HERE”). Next choose the appropriate grade level
for your student. Resources for parents, online Chapter Reviews and online Study Guides
should appear on the screen. Choose the chapter for study and open the Study Guide. Upon
