NEW THIS YEAR! Kindergarten PSR
Space is limited for this class, so register early! Kindergarten PSR is open to children of the parish who will be five-years-old by September 1, and are school-ready. Children will be introduced to the Atrium, learn to pray, know that God is love, God created the universe, God created me, God created you, and we are children of God.

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
Contact: Kathy Dowler614-451-2855, ext. 305,

This Montessori-concept program emphasizes faith formation within a prepared environment called the Atrium. The children work with models of altar materials, infancy narratives and parables to deepen their relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd. Time in the Atrium is scheduled as a regular part of first and second-grade PSR classes. The Catechesis curriculum serves as a supplement for traditional religious education in the school program for children in grades kindergarten through fourth.
