Parish School of Religion (PSR)
Corpus Christi Catholic Church’s Parish School of Religion (PSR) Program is a partnership between the parish and your family. You, as parents, are the primary educators of your child, and the PSR program encourages each child and family to explore and develop their faith and Catholic identity together.
Classes are held for children in Kindergarten through 8thgrade.
First Reconciliation & First Communion are typically celebrated in a child’s 2nd grade year and is held every year.
Confirmation is typically celebrated in a child’s 7thor 8thgrade year and is held every other year in odd numbered years.
Weekly sessions for children use a small group discussion model. While textbooks are used, creative and engaging, age appropriate methods are also used to explore the materials, such as craft projects, cooking activities, games, group projects, and service projects.
Family sessions are held periodically throughout the year. Family sessions are the opportunity for families to gather together to share in faith-based activities.
Throughout the PSR year, there are various activities that PSR students and their families are invited to and encouraged to participate in.
- Children’s Mass: Children's Mass are scheduled throughout the year and students provide the liturgical ministries for this 9am Mass.
- Advent & Lent Collections: During these seasons, the PSR families participate in a project for a local charity.
PSR sessions are from 10am-11am on Sundays. The PSR year runs from the 3rd Sunday in August through the 1st Sunday of May. Registration for PSR is held during the summer with a registration weekend held the 2nd Sunday of August. Note: Confirmation class times, class length as well as frequency of classes may vary from times stated.
We welcome new students year-round. Please contact the parish office to register.
All adult volunteers and employees who work with children have completed diocesan training as well as Illinois and DCFS background checks.

We continue to look for teachers for our PSR program. All classes are team taught so that no one person need commit to every Sunday. We are looking for 3rd/4th grade teachers and 5th/6th grade teachers. If you might be able to help, contact the parish office.
