PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGON
(PSR) GRADES 1-8
Our Parish School of Religion (PSR) dives into the Catholic faith each week led by our wonderful volunteer Catechists, assisting parents who strive to form passionate, active Catholics in the hearts of our children by using the program faith and life online.
Philosophy and Goal
The primary goal of PSR at Our Lady of Victory Parish and Mary, Queen of All Saints is to continue the mission of Jesus by proclaiming the Word of God, celebrating the sacred mysteries, and serving the people of the world.
A love of God, an awareness of God's presence in our lives, and a commitment to Christian service are the values which we strongly encourage. Because this growth and maturity of faith is a life long process, these efforts only supplement the faith development, which is happening within the individual and the family. Through mutual cooperation, families and the parish can help all people assume their full baptismal roles in our parish community and in the church at large.
Mary, Queen of All Saints Program
We offer classes for our public school students in grades 1-8. The classes for grades 1-8 are held on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45am @ St. Simon the Apostle. Classes typically begin in September and end in early May.
The yearly schedules for our PSR classes are posted to our website for your reference.
Tuition is $75 per student for parishioners (with $200 family maximum). Payment of tuition is expected to be paid with the registration form. Tuition is waived for parents who volunteer as catechist or catechist’s aides. No child will be denied a religious education due to a lack of payment. If you need tuition assistance, please contact the Religious Education office at 513-347-8825.

PSR Catechists and Aides
All PSR Catechists and Aides must be Catholic, attend Mass regularly, and follow the laws of the Church in their daily lives. They must be committed to preparing and following the established religious curriculum and lesson plans.
PSR Catechists and Aides are encouraged to attend the spiritual formation classes for catechist certification offered by the Archdiocese.
The Archdiocese requires all volunteers to do an online background check and complete the SafeParish edition of Protecting Children from Sexual Abuse training session, as well as complete interactive video-based SafeParish™ quarterly bulletins on Child Protection.
