Faith Formation (Religious Education)

St. Peter RC Parish




Bishop Richard Malone will come to St. Peter Parish to celebrate Confirmation on
Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

This past March 17, our Grade 4 Faith Formation Class hosted the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass. All the children did a wonderful job as readers, greeters and gift bearers. We would like to thank their catechist, Mr. Lopez, for the great job he did in preparing his students. In Mr. Lopez’s class for the past few weeks, the students have been learning about the different types of prayers and different reasons to pray. The students also have been learning how bullying is wrong and how God wants us to respect our neighbor no matter what our differences are.
