Faith Formation

Faith formation is a journey of deepening our relationship with Jesus.  This relationship is nourished not only by faith that begins at home with the family, but also by participating in the life of the parish here at Sts. Peter & Paul, especially attendance at Mass.  Participation in the Eucharist is the center of our faith. 

If you are willing to become partners with us as we continue to grow your child's faith experience,  please be aware of the following: 

  • Our program prepares children in grades 1-10. During that time children will receive the sacraments of First Eucharist, Penance and Confirmation. 
  • Preparation for First Eucharist and First Penance usually begins in the Fall of first grade. The preparation for this Sacrament requires two years
  • Preparation for Confirmation usually begins in the Fall of eighth grade. This is a two year preparation program. 

We gladly welcome your child into our Faith Formation Program!

If you have any questions or comments on how we can best serve you, please contact Vincent Palminteri via email at
