Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Students are challenged to explore, understand and live their faith through a historically rooted and Scripture based understanding of the personality, mission and nature of Jesus, and of the sacraments he instituted. Service is a large component.
Students are further challenged to explore, understand and live their faith through a historically rooted and Scripture based understanding of the Church and in particular, the Sacrament of Confirmation. Students are invited to deepen their relationship with God, affirm their faith, and live out their faith in the world. There is a retreat component for all students being Confirmed.
Middle School Youth Group
Challenging 7th and 8th-grade students
- to accept the gift of faith so freely given to them,
- to take hold of the responsibilities of that faith and to share it with others,
- to become active members of their parish, and
- to continue their journey to strengthen their faith and deepen their relationship with God
This is the vision of the Middle School Youth Group at St. Peter Roman Catholic Church.
Middle School Students are invited to gather weekly to build community and fellowship, to give of themselves by sharing their gifts and faith stories with others, to pray, and to have fun together. Opportunities for service, reconciliation, prayer, retreats, social activities, and parish involvement are provided.
Calendar coming soon...
Confirmation is celebrated at St. Peter Roman Catholic Church in the eighth grade.
Students wishing to be confirmed here must attend either: Catholic school or PSR (Parish School of Religion) from first through eighth grades.
Exceptions will be handled through the Director of Religious Education.
All candidates for Confirmation must demonstrate a knowledge of the faith, and be active participants in parish life, e.g., Mass.
