PSR, RCIA & Adult Faith

Parish School of Religion (PSR):
Our PSR program provides religious formation and education to public school students in grades kindergarten through eight. PSR helps children to learn and understand Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith. The program is done in cooperation with St. Henry and Our Lady Queen of Peace parishes, with classes held at St. Henry and Blessed Sacrament in Belleville.

PSR volunteers should have a love for children and sharing their faith. Some educational experience preferred but not required. Time commitment is September – April, 3-4 hours per week, every Sunday.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA):
RCIA provides support for interested individuals wishing to join the Roman Catholic Church. The process of converting to Catholicism takes several months to complete, but individuals are encouraged to go at their own pace. RCIA provides individuals with faith formation and instruction.

RCIA volunteers should be open and welcoming, willing to share their personal faith with others. A time commitment of 1 to 1.5 hours per week is needed.
