Register Your Child for PSR for 2020-2021

Please register your child for PSR if you haven’t done so already. Registration is online (preferred) or by phone:

To register online: Click St. Mary's Catholic Religious Education Registration 2020-2021 or copy and paste the link into your browser to fill out the form online (one form per child)

Or you can call Elissa at 573-883-6130 to register by phone.

Elissa will deliver books to everyone’s mailbox the weekend of September 5-6. Please register before then so we are aware of the students that will be attending this year.

The fee is $25 per child and will be due October 4. You can mail in payment (to the address on the registration form) or place it in the collection basket/box. Please write on the check and envelope "for PSR" so we can mark you as paid for the PSR fee.

PSR Classes Begin Virtually September 13

PSR virtual learning begins Sunday, September 13. Please check your email weekly for lessons to be covered. It is the primary responsibility of the caregivers to make sure the students are covering the lessons to stay caught up. We recommend you find a time during the week that works best with your family’s schedule to be designated for PSR.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and we will let you know if and when the decision is made to return to in-person learning as usual.

Thank you for all you do! We appreciate your help in this ever-changing world. Please continue to pray so we can safely return to our “normal” learning environment soon.

All Children Are Welcome!

We want all to feel welcome! Please forward this information to anyone you know who might be interested in registering their child in our program.
