Exclamation What's the difference between CCD & PSR?

What is the difference between CCD & PSR? My parish used to have CCD now a few years ago they changed it to PSR, is one better than the other, different materials? I can't seem to find out the difference at my church they have it but no one knows the difference.
When you look at a crucifix you understand how much Jesus loved you. When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you NOW. - Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

What does PSR mean?

Here they call it SRE (School of Religious Ed).
Don't ask me who Ed is.

Default Re: What's the difference between CCD & PSR?

in cleveland they have PSR (Public School Religion class), down here in sotex we have CCD (which everyone has forgotten stands for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, a body established during the Counter-Reformation to insure proper teaching first to seminarians then to the faithful.) When I was a kid it was just called Catechism, because that's what you did if you didn't go to Catholic school - study the catechism, pass a test on the Q&A so you could make your first communion.

people (DREs are people, too) have come up with their own acronyms, so the diocese requires us to tell what their program is called: CCE continuing Christian education or CCF, continuing Christian formation, School of Religion, or just RE religious education. When parents call me they ask what time is bible class?
Whatever the Lord pleases He does, on heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. Ps. 135
