For the faith of Baptism to unfold, it is important that our faith is nurtured so it stays alive and grows. We at Church of St. Peter are excited to partner with you and your child on this journey of faith. Faith Formation programs at Church of St. Peter encourage, instruct, and engage children in this journey of faith.

The VIRTUS session consists of a presentation of printed materials, videos and group discussion. Among other things, VIRTUS attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms that indicate a child is being abused or exploited in some way, environmental factors to be aware of in the physical space of the parish or school, how abusers operate and things parents can do to help educate their children about how to respond to inappropriate behavior toward them.
