Prep – Parish Religious Education

Home / Education / Prep – Parish Religious Education

We welcome you and your children to the Parish Religious Education Program (PREP). This program is open to all registered families of St. Peter Parish. Our office is currently located in the Parish Office.

Last year was challenging in many ways, but our dedicated group of volunteer catechist  made the switch to zoom virtual classes flawlessly!

We are hopeful that our classes for next fall (2021) will be held “in-person” at the Pope John Paul II Regional Elementary School which is located directly across from the church.Our faith is a precious gift entrusted to us all. The Church, the people of God here on earth, has the responsibility to carry out God’s command to teach all nations and to spread the Good News. In order to do this, mutual cooperation of church, parents, teachers, and students is of vital importance. The Church provides parents with additional help, the Catechist.

Catechetical instructors enrich, enlighten and strengthen our faith. However, Catechists are only aides to the parents. No young person will really grow to the fullness in faith unless they see a living faith at home. Of all the gifts you can give your children, a firm and solid faith, witnessed by you and encouraged by us, is the best of all. Therefore, we ask the cooperation of the parents to aid us in our work and to join in prayer with us as we ask God’s blessings on all we undertake in His name.

Homeschooling Families

If you have a child who will be preparing to receive a sacrament this year, please contact the PREP office by phone or email ASAP. We want to be sure you receive important timely information.

Parents of 1st Graders

If your child is enrolled in Public, Private school or is being Homeschooled – This is the best time to begin their formal Religious Education as well. If they are enrolled now they can be sure to receive their Sacraments in a timely manner. Again, call or email the PREP Office for more information.

Thank you!
