About Our Program

Religious Education classes are offered on Wednesday evenings at either 4:30-5:50 or 6:30-7:50 for grades kindergarten through 7th, running from October-April. Classes are taught by volunteers, both parents of children in our program and other adults, college students and older teens. Our teachers are given special training, ongoing support and materials that are needed in order to be successful in passing on the Faith.

The students will have the opportunity to attend family activities, Adoration and Stations of the Cross; participate in the Sacraments, learning of Bible stories, service projects, and question and answer sessions with our priests. Additionally, weekly sessions help your child learn about and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.

Parental involvement is a must. We are partners in the religious education of your children, with key support and involvement beginning at home. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to attend a class or any of the events mentioned above, and there are various activities throughout the year where we count on parent support and attendance to help engage their students in their faith.

We look forward to adding you to our parish family!

We use the FACTS system for secure and confidential financial account management. As part of the registration process, we'll ask you to review and update, if necessary, your contact information in FACTS before selecting your payment options (one or three payments).

Our parish is currently transitioning to the Parishsoft database, which will make it much easier for the church staff as a whole to organize information across the campus. We'll send details when registration opens on how this will make updating information easier year to year!

Missed a Sacrament?

Students at SS. Peter and Paul typically make their First Reconciliation and receive their First Holy Communion in 2nd grade.  If your child is older and has missed these sacraments, not to worry. Depending on your child's age and any previous religious education, we have programs in place to integrate them in the weekly classes and provide additional unique insight into their faith with family support.
