FAITH FORMATION


Parish School of Religion (PSR)

Our PSR program provides religious formation and education to public school students in kindergarten through eighth grade. PSR helps children to learn and understand Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith. The program is held jointly among Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady Queen of Peace and St. Henry Catholic churches. Classes are held at St. Henry.

PSR volunteers should have a love for children and for sharing their faith. Some educational experience preferred but not required. Time commitment is September through April, 3-4 hours per week, every Sunday.

Bible Study

Study various books of the Bible, one at a time, in a small group setting. The group chooses a different book for each session. The Little Rock Scripture Study program is the basis of the discussions. Study materials are available. No reservations are needed. Time commitment varies.

Become a Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program provides support for interested individuals wishing to join the Roman Catholic Church. The process of converting to Catholicism takes several months to complete, but individuals are encouraged to go at their own pace. RCIA provides individuals with faith formation and instruction.

Help others prepare for their faith journey by becoming an RCIA volunteer. All volunteers should be open and welcoming, willing to share their personal faith with others. A time commitment of 1 to 1.5 hours per week is needed.
