Parish School of Religion

The Saint Joseph Parish School of Religion offers PreK-4 through 8th grade Faith Formation on Sunday mornings from 10:45 am to 11: 45 am.  Our catechists bring the Catholic Faith to our young parishioners each Sunday.  With the support of volunteers and parents, the goal is to bring each child to a loving and lasting relationship with God.   For more information on any of the programs of the Parish School of Religion or Sacramental information or to volunteer, contact Cynthia Pettiette at cpettiette@stjosephchurch.net

For our children to receive a complete and lasting Catholic education in their young years, the involvement of their parents is imperative.  This can be as simple as attending Mass on Sunday regularly.  Click here to view the Go-To-Guide for Catholic Parents and Guardians as established by the Office of Catechesis of the Diocese of Shreveport. Parent Go-To Guide

The Touching Safety Program is presented to all Parish School of Religion students as required under the guidelines established by the Diocese of Shreveport.  The link below provides more information.

Volunteer Opportunities: There are many ways to become involved in the Faith formation of the youth of Saint Joseph Parish.  Pancake breakfast in the Fall, Christmas gathering with collection of Toys for the Gingerbread House and items for the Glen residents and other Faith building events throughout the year.  Or consider volunteering  to serve as a Catechist or a Catechist’s aide on Sunday mornings.  Your Faith will grow as abundantly as the children you teach!  Help is needed as the Parish School of Religion continues to grow.  If you are a volunteer in the PSR program or any other Parish youth program, you MUST complete the Protecting God’s Children course as provided by the Diocese of Shreveport each 2nd Wednesday of the Month, 6:00 PM at the Catholic Center.  This course is part of an ongoing effort to help create and maintain a safe environment for our children.
