The PSR program at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit are from grades K-8th grade. We offer classes on Sunday mornings from 9am until 10:15am. Our teachers are dedicated to our students' religious education. We also use the Corporal Works of Mercy as a guide to help round our students. We have different events throughout the year where the students feed the hungry and give drink to those that are thirsty by helping out with a food drive for Catholic Charities or the Judy Mason Project; Shelter the homeless by making mats out of grocery sacks for the homeless and also begging for money at Cardboard City; Visit the sick by visiting our local nursing homes, singing carols to them around Christmas time and making them cards; Visit the prisoners, our program collected gifts for children in our area that have been in CASA; Bury the dead, many of our students help with funeral masses by serving at the Mass; and Give alms for the poor, we participate in Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl.
Something new we tried this past year was having our PSR students help out with Mass on Sundays. Our k-1 classes were our greeters, 2nd Grade bring up the gifts, 3rd and 4th Grades user and clean the vessels after mass, 5th and 6th serve at Mass, and 7th-8th Grades Read the Liturgy of the Word. On the schedule we call this Youth Sunday.
