Religious Education

St. Peter’s Religious Education Program strives to support families, especially parents, “the primary heralds of the Gospel”, in the formation of their children’s religious education and sacrament preparation.

Our Religious Education Program consists of attending Mass together on the third Sunday of each month, followed by the students and their families attending a formation session in the Parish Hall.

Sacramental Preparation

Those students who are preparing to receive sacraments in the spring, will come together by grade/age group on the first Sunday of each month after the 9 AM Mass for an hour lesson for their sacrament preparation. These students will also attend retreat days and Penance services during the year.

General Information

The Religious Education Program is in session from October through May. Re-registration for children already in the program, as well as families registering for the first time, takes place in April prior to the new school year. Children entering the program for the first time must provide proof of Baptism at the time of registration.  Late fees will be imposed after June 1st.  Mailings will be sent home during the month of August with information and our calendar for the upcoming school year.

Special Education

Sometimes, circumstances exist that do not allow for a child to take part in a regular classroom setting. If your child requires special education needs, please call the Office of Religious Education to discuss/arrange for suitable alternatives. Every possible consideration will be given to help your child grow in his/her faith.
