CHRISTIAN FAITH FORMATION


The mission of the Christian Faith Formation Commission is to provide opportunities for all members of our parish to learn and grow in their understanding of the fundamentals, practices and beliefs of our Catholic faith, enabling our parish community to serve others more fully in the Spirit of Christ.

Parish School of Religion
St. Patrick Catholic Church Parish School of Religion provides a learning environment where students from kindergarten through 8th grade are taught the principles of the Catholic faith and to live the Gospel values.  PSR works with parents to prepare 2nd graders for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.  We follow a curriculum approved by the Diocese of Jefferson City.  Parents, staff, and volunteers work together to help our children to grow in the rich traditions of our faith.

Vacation Bible School
A one week summer program offered to children in the parish and community.  VBS is a fun, theme-based program focusing on Jesus with games, crafts, Bible stories and more. Volunteers, adults and older students, are always needed and make this program a huge success.

Youth Ministry
Consists of our high school PSR students and we call ourselves “CHRISTeens”.  We combine fun activities and games with catechesis to create an atmosphere that allows the youth to learn about, enjoy, practice and share their faith.  For more information, contact parish office.

Confirmation
High School Juniors enrolled in High School Religion prepare for the celebration of Confirmation by attending sessions for candidates and their sponsors, a Confirmation Retreat, the diocesan Day of Reflection and completing service hours.  Regular attendance in religion class in 9th, 10, and 11 grades is required.  ADULTS who have not received the sacrament of Confirmation should contact Deacon Dave Lovell (573) 374-7855.

Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice (Psalm 105:3)
