Education & Formation

St. Peter Teen Summer Service Week 2017
set the World on Fire!
Our teens served McCreesh Place residents with a cookout, the soup kitchen at Ascension Lutheran in Dilworth,  with Our Lady of Consolation Summer Camp, activities with Charlotte Boys and Girls Club, living the message of Laudato Si by cleaning up a local creek, building a Ramp for a homeowner to access his home, and helping the adults and children at Holy Angels!   The teens also advocated for those who are on the fringes of society – the refugees, the homeless, the environment and children in war torn countries – at the Lemon Aid Stand outside of our church.

At St. Peter Catholic Church we believe that faith formation is not limited to our children, but that mystagogia is a life-long process of renewal and deepening in the mysteries of our faith. The Office of Faith Formation at St. Peter assists this deepening of faith by offering education, service, and retreat opportunities to parishioners of all ages. This website provides you with information about programs at St. Peter and throughout the diocese.  Please contact the Office of Faith Formation, at with questions, concerns, and ideas.

Video spotlight:  Watch this!  Tim Muldoon talks about why Ignatian spirituality is appealing for young people.

Parish children, ages 3-12 grow in faith through The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) religious program.  For details about the curriculum and session offerings please visit the Religious Education page or contact the Office of Faith Formation @
