August 6, 2020
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, most of our parish faith formation will be home-based this fall. We are excited about our new offerings and hope you can join us!
To register for any of the activities below, please complete the 2020 Faith Formation Registration Form at https://www.stpeterchurch.org/registration/
Monthly Family Masses
During this time while we are not able to have regular faith formation at St. Peter, Fr. Auggie is going to offer a monthly Family Mass for children, teens and parents. He will also be available for confessions before the Family Mass. Of course, children are welcome at any of our parish Masses or our regular confession times. But considering the present circumstances, we thought it might be helpful to set aside one Mass a month to be geared to the children and teens of the parish. The first Family Mass is scheduled for Sunday August 30th at 1 PM.
Monthly Home Activities and Prayer
Each month we will focus on a theme related to our faith. Activities will be sent home at the Family Mass. (We will arrange a pickup for those unable to attend.) September’s theme will be Prayer.
First Communion Preparation (Gr. 1 and 2)
Per Diocese of Memphis norms, preparation for First Communion is a two-year process. Usually children prepare for First Communion during grades 1 and 2, but we are happy to work on a plan to prepare older children or teens for First Communion as well.
Information about preparing for First Communion this year may be accessed here:
Per Diocese of Memphis norms, preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process. Usually children prepare for Confirmation during grades 7 and 8, but we are happy to work on a plan to prepare older teens as well. Information about preparing for Confirmation may be accessed here:
We offer a prayer gathering for children on most Sunday mornings. We read the Sunday Gospel, sing and pray. Currently, we gather via video conferencing.
Students in grades 4-6 are invited to gather for prayer and scripture sharing. This fall, we will highlight some interesting saints who celebrate fall feast days and look at saintly virtues we see in their lives and ours. We will gather via video conferencing.
Last spring the high school group discussed The Screwtape Letters via Zoom. More information soon about this fall!
