Druid Hills Partnership

Since 2011, St. Peter parish has partnered with Druid Hills Academy, a Pre K -8th grade school located near downtown. Druid Hills has been designated a 100% poverty school. Our mission is threefold: to support the students, teachers and staff, and families of Druid Hills through many initiatives.

The Druid Hills Academy Partnership will have special meeting and commissioning on January 21, 2023 - Open to all parishioners! January 21, Saturday from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. join us for an update about the ministry that helps students, teachers, staff and parents at Druid Hills PreK - 8 Academy. The partnership stewards will receive commissioning and all are invited to attend  Mass at 5:00. 

Druid Hills Annual Teacher Supply Drive: choose a teacher's tag from the church narthex on Jan. 7/8 or Jan. 14/15. Bring back the donated supply on Jan. 21/22 or Jan. 28/29 before Mass.

Adopt A Teacher: Look for the Heart Tree as you walk into the church. Select a teacher you would like to help. All the information a out what to purchase and when to deliver is on the "Teacher Tag". We also welcome Donations if you do not have time to shop.  Thank You!
