2017 Lent Service Project

Can you help us Fill the Ark? Our goal is to raise $5,000 this year to purchase an Ark from Heifer International. All PSR classes from Preschool through 8th Grade are encouraged to participate, and support from the parish is greatly appreciated!

Preschool Faith Formation

It's never too early to begin your child's religious education. For that reason, we offer PSR programs for preschool-age children as young as three. Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program starts in preschool and continues through sixth grade. We are also offer Early Catholic Family Life for preschool families on Saturday mornings. For information on the weekday parish preschool, visit the St. Peter Chanel Parish Preschool page. 

 

Preschool PSR (3K-4K)

Sundays: 9:00 am or 10:45 am at St. Peter Chanel Classrooms

Our Preschool religious education program is here to support you in the faith development of your children.  Our weekly sessions strive to help your child grow in their prayer life, experience and encourage discipleship, and to know the gifts of belonging to a vibrant faith community.  Our religious education sessions are led by volunteer catechists who love sharing our faith with our children. Please visit our Catechists page for information on volunteer roles and responsibilities.

We use Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation as our foundational curriculum. This curriculum integrates our Sunday Eucharist celebrations with the ongoing life of the parish community. The program flows from the words of Jesus Christ in the Gospels. Children experience active learning through both the liturgy and Catholic doctrine as well as fellowship and service in the community.

 

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (3K-6)

Sundays: 8:45 am or 10:30 am at St. Peter Chanel Classrooms

These sessions follow a Montessori format and are held in a specially-equipped "Atrium" in Classroom 5 of the St. Peter Chanel building. Learners must complete the lowest age applicable level before moving on to the next level. For more information, visit the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd website. All Good Shepherd sessions are 90 minutes and meet in the St. Peter Chanel classrooms.
