God created and loves your child! Our Children’s Ministries focus on helping the children to feel God’s love within their families and in Church. Our goal is to make the children little disciples of Jesus Christ. 

Preparation for First Communion consists of 2 years: the first year the child attends named “Glow” and the second named “Blaze.” These can occur while the child is in first and second grade, although one-third of the children at St Peter are older than second grade when they receive First Communion. Preparation should take place when you as parents are ready and able to support your child in the faith by participating in home lessons/activities, praying together at home, and going to Mass as a family every Sunday.

Registration for this year 2021-2022 closed on August 31, 2021. 

Registration for next year, 2022-2023, will be available on the parish website beginning on July 1, 2022.

Until children under 12 are able to be fully vaccinated from COVID, all SPkids programs will be facilitated by the child's parents in the home. As soon as we are able and it is safe, we will return to in person classes combined with Sunday Mass attendance and home activities. 

Children in the first year “Glow” focus on learning about Jesus, Bible stories and basic prayers. This is the first year of preparation to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion. Classes are offered in English and Spanish.


Children in the second year “Blaze” prepare intensely for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion. Children must have successfully completed the first year of “Glow.”

Children who are in grades 3, 4 and 5 and have already received First Communion attend the SPkids program called “Shine,” focusing on scripture study and forming friendships with other Catholic kids in a small group format. 


If you are interested in leading SPkids in person sessions when they resume, please contact Becky Miklos.
