Parish School of Religion
(PSR) Information
The Parish School of Religion for Saint Monica and Saint Martin of Tours is a program that prepares children who attend public schools for the sacraments. Both Parishes work together to ensure that all students have proper preparation with catechists who are strong in their faith and share it with their students. Our PSR program is held at Saint Martin of Tours School on Mondays, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
The first day of the 2023-2024 PSR program is September 18th and will begin with a Parent and Student Mass at Saint Martin’s Church. After Mass, students will be introduced to their teachers, walk over to the school, and attend a shortened class. 
Calendars for the 2023-2024 PSR Year are available at Saint Monica’s Parish Office along with the Student Enrolment Form and the Medical Form. Please bring the completed forms to Saint Martin of Tours Office or to the First Class on September 18th
