Baptism frees us from sin and we are reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission. It is the basis of the whole Christian life and therefore preparation is necessary. 

Parents are required to be registered members of St. Peter and must attend a Baptismal Preparation Program.  The goal of the class is to convey an understanding of Baptism in the Church today; to help parents recognize their responsibility and role in the development of their child’s faith. You are encouraged to attend the program before the birth of your child.  The Upcoming class dates can be found in the bulletin.  Classes begin promptly at 9:00am in the St. Monica Classroom in the Parish Hall. Please register in advance. For more information and to register, please contact the parish office. 

Baptisms are celebrated in English following the 4:30 p.m. Mass.
 

Adults and children age 7 and older would prepare for Baptism through the Religious Education Office with Becky Miklos, Director of Religious Education.

RECONCILIATION

This sacrament allows us to confess our sins, receive absolution and be reconciled with the Church. 

Reconciliation, also called confession, must be received before First Communion (Eucharist).  Children and youth receive two years of instruction before receiving Reconciliation in 2nd grade. Classes are also available for children and youth who are above 2nd grade and want to receive Reconciliation. Please contact Becky Miklos, Director of Religious Education. Adults would participate in our RCIA program. 

EUCHARIST

The sacrament of Confirmation can be received by those youth and adults who have already received Baptism, Reconciliation and Communion.  Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation and all the faithful should receive this sacrament. 

For youth, confirmation preparation is a two-year program that begins in grade 8 per the guidelines for the Diocese of Palm Beach. Youth who would like to be confirmed must be registered member of our parish.  For more information please contact Layne Behncke.  Adults who wish to be confirmed would participate in our RCIA program.
