We offer a variety of programs to support parents in their role as the primary educators in the ways of our Catholic faith for those children attending public or other private schools. For information on the following programs please contact the Parish Office.
PSR GRADES PRE-K TO GRADE 8
The PSR program serves to support parents in the spiritual development and faith formation of their children. This year the program will be held virtually due to current pandemic conditions.
PSR HOME SCHOOLING: GRADES 1-8
Under certain circumstances, this option offers parents the opportunity to work with their child/ren at home as the primary teachers of the Catholic faith. Parents are responsible for covering all of the material and discussing the topics with their children, on a weekly basis as they learn their grade-level Catholic social teachings and catechism.
HIGH SCHOOL PSR: GRADES 9-12
At this time, there is not a program for this age level. Confirmation preparation will take place in the second semester.
CATECHESIS FOR ADAPTIVE NEEDS (CAN)
As the Community of Gesu, we have adapted and/or modified our religious education curriculum to better meet the needs of children with different abilities and adaptive needs. If you are a family with a child with special needs, we are here to journey with and help you! Gesu offers ALL people the opportunity to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist) and will journey with your families toward the reception of these sacraments. Classes will be held monthly, on Saturday mornings from 10:00-11:00 am in the Loyola Room of the Dayschool, from October through April (see below for a complete calendar). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Marcia Leous. The presence of your child/ren in this program is a sign and symbol of God’s love for all!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
VBS is a week-long summer experience of fun and learning for children from 4 years to 4th grade.
