Home-Based PSR. Parents who wish to catechize their children at home are able to choose a home-based model for faith formation. Home-based PSR exists in two models:

A) Textbook-based that is a parent-led mentoring of the child using the PSR Christ Our Life religion textbook series.

B) Online using the Faith and Life program at mycatholicfaithdelivered.com.

NOTE WELL: Parent choosing the Home-Based PSR option should register with the PSR Office using the standard PSR registration form. Please indicate Home-Based Option as well as Textbook or Online Model on the registration form. Parents using the Textbook Model should pay the $75 fee to Saint Bernadette Parish. Parents using the Online Model pay their fee online directly to My Catholic Faith  Delivered.
