First Communion Preparation
Per Diocese of Memphis norms, preparation for First Communion is a two-year process, done usually when a child is in grades 1 and 2. This spring and summer, we are offering monthly gatherings for our children who are preparing for First Communion next year (2022). We are using the book I Am the Good Shepherd, and children can meet in person or via Zoom. If your child is in first grade and would like to receive First Communion next year, please contact Christina at [email protected].
Per Diocese of Memphis norms, preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process, usually done when a student is in grades 7 and 8. Information about preparing for Confirmation may be accessed here: https://www.stpeterchurch.org/sacraments/confirmation/
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (Gr. 3 and younger)
We offer a prayer gathering for children on most Sunday mornings. We read the Sunday Gospel, sing and pray. We have been meeting via Zoom but hope to shift to in-person gatherings soon.
