MACS Families!

If your child is getting ready to prepare for First Communion or Confirmation:
MACS students of St. Peter parishioners are asked to attend the parish sacramental programs.
To be eligible to receive a sacrament, a student must have completed one full year of catechesis or Catholic school prior to their sacramental year.
Whole Family and Homeschool catechesis at St. Peter can serve as the “pre-confirmation” year. Registration is open for sacramental preparation.
