PSR - Parish School of Religion:  All PSR volunteers are called to teach and witness the Good News of Jesus Christ to our children so that they may respond to God in faith, prayer, behavior, community, and discipleship. We are looking for people who love their faith and want to pass on that faith to our children and youth. If your desire is to teach or simply support those who will be teaching; we would love to have you join a team. Please contact the appropriate Program Coordinator with any questions, or complete the online PSR Adult Volunteer form if you are interested in volunteering.
