Parish School of Catholic Formation (P.S.C.F)
The principals of P.S.C.F. are Mr. and Mrs. Larry & Christine "Chris" Pizon. They have been running P.S.C.F since the 1984 school year.
P.S.C.F. is a Catechetical program which uses the traditional classroom approach. The current school year is comprised of 13 dedicated teachers, 8 aides and 260 students spanning grads 1st - 8th.
Students use text books from the Sadlier Series "We Believe" program. Teachers focus on an age-appropriate presentation of the Catholic Faith through prayer and instructing the truths of Catholic Faith as found in Scripture, Tradition and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The children are then encouraged to respond to each week's lesson with prayer, reflection and action by living out their discipleship among peers, family, school and parish.
Time is also spent on the different seasons and feasts of the church year (i.e. Advent, Christmas, Lent & Easter) to help the children understand and celebrate these special seasons and feasts.
The diocese's "Called to Protect" program is also incorporated into the school year to empower our children to be safe from abuse and to have a safe environment.
Since our time is limited to only one class period a week, we encourage parents to take an active role in continuing their weekly lesson in the context of the home and the family. We ask our parish family for continued prayers and support as we minister to the children of St. Colette.
