Parish School of Religion

The mission of St. Catherine of Siena Parish School of Religion is to assist our families in fulfilling their baptismal promises and to lead them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  We strive to carry out this mission by providing spiritual formation, catechesis, and fellowship.
