Parish School of Religion (PSR)

**Bilingual Option Available

Beginning July 2021 St. Boniface Catholic Church implemented the “Restored Order” per Bishop Paprocki. This simply refers to celebrating the sacraments of initiation in the order in which God designed them to be given baptism, confirmation, first Eucharist. It also restores the practice of administering the sacraments of confirmation and first Eucharist when they reach the age of reason.

In Second Grade your children will prepare for the sacrament of reconciliation and begin going to confession.  In Third Grade, they will prepare for confirmation and first Eucharist, and receive both sacraments at the same Mass held at our Mother Church, Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield.

Additional information regarding the “restored order” can be found on:

  • PSR welcomes all public-school students entering grades Kindergarten through 5th grade for the school year.
  • Children in grades 6th and 7th needing 1st Holy Communion and Confirmation must contact the office directly at 618-656-6450 prior to registration.
  • Children above 7th grade do not attend PSR classes. Contact the Parish Office and register for the Order of Christian Initiation for Adults (OCIA) program (formerly RCIA).

Volunteer catechists and assistants are needed annually to staff each grade. What better way to share your knowledge of our faith and communicate it than this rewarding ministry? Please contact Jo Niebur at 618-656-6450 if you are interested.
