Parish School of Religion (PSR)
  PSR will be available for students in grades Kindergarten thru 12th grades for 2020-2021.      
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.)  
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. 

Youth Group is available for students in grades 7-12, including those youth who have recently completed the 6th grade.  Registration for PSR is not required.  Parish membership is not required.   Youth Group will have meetings on Wednesdays following the PSR class during the regular school year and dismisses at 8:30 p.m.  Other dates and times will be provided for special activities.  Other events may be held at other dates and times.  Please see the Youth Group web page for additional information and summer activities.

Letter to parents

Dear Parents,

Archbishop Robert Carlson has announced that all schools and religious education programs
in the Archdiocese of St. Louis will close beginning Wednesday, March 18th.

Archbishop Carlson made this decision in cooperation with local and state government and
health officials. Archbishop Carlson says the health and safety of the people of the archdiocese is
a priority and sees this decision as the best path forward to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19
virus in our area.

We continue to work with the Archdiocese of St. Louis and state and local health officials to
ensure the safety of children. We are in this together and remind you that your role as parents is
the most critical component in the strategy of preventing the spread of this illness.
  •  If a family member is symptomatic of the COVID-19 coronavirus, please contact your
county health department. Officials operating the hotline will give you information on
testing and the need to self-quarantine.
  •  If you or a close relative plans to travel, you are advised to check the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC) link for travel guidelines and the latest updates on areas with confirmed
cases of COVID-19. If you are traveling to an area where the virus is present or are
unsure whether or not it is present at your travel destination, please contact the St. Louis
County Department of Health Hotline at (314) 615-2660 for further instruction.
  •  Be aware of how COVID-19 spreads and what you can do to prevent it. That information
is similar to the procedures we use in preventing influenza and can be found here.
  •  State and health officials have banned gatherings of 50 or more people.
Prayer is of the upmost importance. Please continue to pray the prayer given to us by the
USCCB. You can find the prayer posted at
If you have any questions, please contact me or the school office.
