And I tell you, you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
~ Matthew 16:18-19 (NRSV)

St. Peter’s Helps Us to Grow in Faith & Love of God
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that parents should begin their children’s education of the faith in their earliest years and the parish is “a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents.”
St. Peter's religious education program serves children from the kindergarten through 8th grade. Meeting on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, the children are taught by adult volunteers the beauty of the Catholic faith and are prepared for the Sacraments.
For further information about St. Peter's RE program, please contact
Toni Pietrowski at 630-773-1272 ext. 216.
