Our Vision...

Our wonderful Youth Programs at St. Peter's
Our youth are fortunate to be able to participate in a very strong formation program throughout the school year with classes for each group meeting each Sunday. We have a group of excellent youth leaders/advisers/teachers who usually stay with the same group as they advance through the curriculum year by year. Our youth program represents a huge investment from the youth, from the church, and especially from the dedicated leaders, who also learn a lot about themselves even as they learn about the youth as individuals and as a group.
