Welcome to our Religious Education Program!

The mission of Saint Peter’s Religious Education Program is to deepen in our children their awareness and understanding of God’s loving presence in their lives and to strengthen in them the Christian message of justice and love.

Our CCD program begins in first grade and culminates with Confirmation in eleventh grade. Our curriculum is designed to meet Diocesan requirements and provide our young people with the best foundation to receive the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. Our classes are taught by volunteer teachers who give of their time and talent to share our Catholic faith.

Most importantly, our program is meant only to be an extension of the religious education our young people receive at home. Though we delve into sacred scripture and tradition, their true understanding of the faith comes from parental example, regular Mass attendance, and routine reception of the sacraments.

If your child fall between grades one and eleven and you wish to enroll them in our program, please print and complete the Registration Form below and return before the first class.
