St. Peter Parish Faith Formation Philosophy

The prime concern of St. Peter Faith Formation Program is to nurture the seeds of faith implanted within the child.  Faith is a precious gift of God.  It is not something which can be taught.  However, the catechists, the staff, and the parents working together can be a source of life to help the seeds of faith mature, through formal faith formation and implementing the threefold purpose of Christian education: To witness the MESSAGE of faith, in order to develop a COMMUNITY, who sees as its mission the SERVICE of God's people.  Faith formation is more than just a classroom exercise.  It is bound up with one's entire life, a life of daily Christian living1
