Hello from Regina Schnipke, your Coordinator of Religious Education for the St. Nicholas and Holy Family parishes! I am truly blessed and excited to enter into year two of this position! I thank God for many things, especially all our new & returning catechists and for your YES in entrusting your children to our care and teaching this school year. We are here for them, and we are here for you. Please reach out if you ever have any questions or concerns!
Our Parish School of Religion (PSR) program welcomes all students, regardless of church affiliation. We kindly ask that all forms be submitted and fees sent in by Wednesday, August 10, so please take care of them as quickly as possible. Please also take note of the following:
Kindergarten and Preschool
students generally meet twice a month, beginning in October, either during the 8:30am Mass at Holy Family or during 10:30am Mass at St. Nicholas (choose one).
students meet every school morning during their release period.
6th and 7th grade
students meet on Wednesday evenings, from 7:00-8:00 P.M. in the Upper Rooms of the old school at St. Nicholas (please see the schedule below when classes begin).
students meet all together at St. Nicholas Parish Center from 6:00-8:00 P.M. on Wednesdays for the regular sessions until they begin their Confirmation preparation. They will then meet from 6:00-7:30 in the Parish Center with adoration in the church until 8:00 P.M. (please see the schedule below when classes begin).
students meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 P.M. in the Holy Family Religious Education Center and the Holy Family Parish Hall/basement (please see the schedule below when classes begin).
PSR Registration fees may be paid via online giving on our parish website (stnicholasholyfamily.org under Online Giving, St. Nicholas Parish ONLY—https://www.osvhub.com/st-nicholas-miller-city/giving/funds/psr-fees-preschool-through-grade-12), placed in the weekend collections, mailed to P.O. Box #40, Miller City OH 45864, or brought to the Parish Office by August 10. Please make checks payable to "St. Nicholas Parish". No student is ever denied admittance to our Parish School of Religion classes nor to our sacramental preparation programs for inability to pay the fees. However, we do rely upon these fees to meet our budget. (*2nd & 8th grade fees cover for retreat & sacramental curriculum costs). Fees are as follows:
Preschool & Kindergarten - $30
1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th Grades - $45
2nd & 8th Grades - $80*
6th, 7th, 9th-12th Grades - $35
