Life Teen (9th - 12th)
We are a Life Teen parish, meaning we are a part of an International Catholic Movement of the Holy Spirit aimed at Leading Teens Closer to Christ through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary and The Eucharist; The Source and Summit of our faith! St. Peters has implemented Life Teen as our Christian Formation program for 9-12 grades. The Life Teen or Christian Formation classes are called Life Nights. Life Teen is 100% Catholic, teaching the totality of the Truth of our faith, challenging teens to live that same faith. All 9th-12th grade members of the parish should participate in the Life Teen program as their Christian Formation. Coupled with fulfilling their Sunday Obligation of attending Mass each Sunday and Life Nights, we offer additional retreats and youth group activities throughout the year. Life Teen is not taught by individual catechists, but led by a CORE TEAM of adults who are active in the life of the parish and work each week praying for the teens, connecting with them in a relational setting, and teaching the truth in a comfortable but content-filled program.
Relational ministry is a large part of our program where we as ministers and our core members get to know the teens on their ground (football games, band concerts, plays and so on). Teens are also invited to be a disciple by not only being at Mass but serving as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Altar Servers and Ministers of Welcome during the Life Teen Mass. Youth are a major part of St. Peter's Catholic Church and we continuously do what we can to serve those in need in and around our parish..
Families can print out the Registration Form, mail or drop off the registration form at the parish office, and pay by cash, check, credit card, and online. You may also come by the parish office for a paper version of the registration form. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email Bert or Lacey.
In addition to the registration form, we have our liability form that we use for all of our events through out the year. Just fill out the form once and we'll keep it on file for the year.
LIFE NIGHT MEALS
Our teens love food! And teens with a full belly will learn more....or so we've been told!
We are trying something new this year by asking for monetary donations to provide meals for the Sunday Life Nights instead of having parents cook each week.
The goal is to have each family make a one-time donation so that we will have enough funds to provide meals for the fall semester. We will ask for another donation in the spring semester.
We will purchase ready made meals (pizza, tacos, sandwich trays, etc) that can easily be served in the Family Life Center.
Donations can be dropped off at the church office, mailed or turned into Lacey or Bert. Please be sure to mark donations "Life Night Meals." If you have any questions, please contact Lacey at 830-816-5663.
