CHILDREN AND THE EUCHARIST

The purpose of this ministry is to delight the Heart of Jesus by gently drawing children to encounter him in the Eucharist. We do this in two ways:

Children’s Adoration

Saturday at 3:00 p.m. children ages 4 – 14 gather to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for one hour of directed prayer, song and reflection. This worldwide movement, founded by Fr. Antoine, FJ, was blessed by Pope John Paul II. We can also assist the school and PSR in leading adoration to the religion classes.

MASS/ALTAR SERVERS

Weekday Mass Serving is a great opportunity for students in 5th grade and up to give back to their parish community. Weekday Mass serving is scheduled by the school principal, but is open to students who attend public schools as well. Weekday servers should plan to arrive at church by 7:45 AM and Mass is usually over by 8:30 AM. Training is held every May for those students attending St. Peter Catholic School, and additional training is held during the summer for all students. Training can also be scheduled by appointment for those wishing more one-on-one instruction. Being an Altar Server is a great privilege and gives you an up close and personal look at the Mass. You can also sign up for weekday summer Masses. If you would like to be scheduled for weekday Mass serving, or for any questions about serving or training, please contact the coordinator for this ministry.
