Director of Religious Education – Patrice Peterson  


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 located and our classes are held 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.
