Saint Peter School

Jesus Christ is the reason for St. Peter School, ever present in the halls and classrooms and taught to the children by word and example. The School began with the Sisters of Notre Dame over 55 years ago as the educators who set the high standard of education for which we are known today. Their presence and influence is still active to this day through Youth Ministry, Altar Serving and prayers. There is daily prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance along with morning announcements broadcast to the classrooms from the School Office with modern technological equipment. Weekly Mass is celebrated every Tuesday at 8:30 am and all of the grades participate. The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is offered during Advent and Lent to the school children who are baptized and have received the Sacrament of Holy Communion. For the families who desire these Sacraments PSR (Parish School of Religion) is available every Sunday from 10:30 am until 11:45 am from September until May.

School Office hours are 7:45 am until 3:15 pm. Before and after school care is available starting at 7:30 am, or after school until 6:00 pm. There are various after school activities and sports available to the students as well. If you would like more information please use the contact information below.

Parish School of Religion

The parish provides religious education opportunities for the children of the parish who attend public schools. Classes for grades one through eight are held on Sunday mornings from 10:30 am to 11:45 am. You may register your child in the Library during PSR or come to the Parish Center to obtain a registration form. The first catechists in any child's life are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens at home - both positive and negative - provides lessons for life. Family faith should be shared as part of the the unfolding of daily life. Our homes provide the foundation in which our children learn to live his or her faith. Our goal is to enrich and form lifelong faith formation centered around the life of the church. Volunteers are needed as catechists, substitutes, aides, and office help.

Confirmation

Young people preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation meet on four Sunday mornings through the year, and have a retreat day before the Confirmation ceremony. Volunteers are needed for the team, and to help with special events through the process.

Infant Baptism Preparation

Holy Baptism holds the first place among the sacraments, because it is the door of the spiritual life; for by it we are made members of Christ and incorporated with the Church. A Baptism class is required before the date of Baptism is set. Classes are held at varying parishes throughout the area and tend to last about one hour. Call the Parish Office to find when and where the next class will be held - 440-282-9103.

RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults are brought into the Church through the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. The process begins in the fall with weekly sessions and Mass attendance and culminates in the celebration of the sacraments at the Easter Vigil. A team of volunteers meets every week with those who are preparing for initiation, and on other occasions to plan special activities.

Vacation Bible School

In the early summer, the parish sponsors a week long “Bible School” for children ages four through ten. Many volunteers are needed to serve as group leaders, activity organizers, aides, and assistants with the various activities of the week.
