7 high school students from St Peter attended the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice in Washington, D.C. this past November. They advocated for Immigration Reform, specifically the DREAM Act, and the Sentincing Reform and Corrections Act. Our students went to the Senate offices of Richard Burr and Thom Tillis to share their knowledge and Catholic social justice beliefs. After returning to Charlotte, the students shared their expereinces and insights with our Confirmation class and adult parishioners.

Our YOUth Ministry program offers service opportunities for our elementary, middle, and high school students. For the past 27 years our parish has integrated service learning with our Faith Formation. We also host teen social gatherings to build Catholic fellowship.
Flowing from our experience of God’s Mercy, we are impelled to live a Faith that does justice. For more information, contact Cathy Chiappetta at email@example.com
