Religious Education for Children  

We’ll see you at Sunday Family Mass in Benedict Hall 2nd Floor at 9:00 am

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 @

YOUth Ministry  –
We offer ongoing service opportunities for Middle and High School students throughout the year. For information about these service opportunities visit the YOUth Ministry page or contact the Office of Faith Formation.
