Faith Formation

(St. Peter's & St. Bernard's Worship sites)



We have received our date for Confirmation. It will be Tuesday, May 22 at 7 p.m. with Bishop Richard Malone.

On Saturday, April 14, our Grade 3 First Communion class had their retreat. Mary Palmer lead the “Superhero Eucharist Retreat.” The children spent time learning how the bread and wine are changed by transubstantiation. They also learned when we receive Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, it gives us very special super power. With this superhero power, we are called to give service just as Jesus did. The children had a craft time where they worked on their superhero capes. They also learned the “Power in the Blood” song with hand motions. The retreat included a quiet time of meditation and a closing prayer service. A special thank you to all our parents, to Mary Palmer for leading the retreat, and to Mrs. Laurie Grenga, Mrs. Mary Ruth Baumler, Mrs. Connie Locey and all who made the retreat so special.
