Children’s Sacramental Preparation

Registration for our religious education programs is open now until Friday, August 28th.

(The office closes at 12 noon on Friday)

St. Peter, with every parish in the Archdiocese of Denver, follows the restored order of the sacraments of initiation.

Read the Archbishop’s pastoral letter here.

Restored order means that children are prepared to complete the sacraments of initiation (Reconciliation, Confirmation and Communion) through a 2 year program.  Children are Confirmed and received the Eucharist at the end of the two years at the same Mass.

If your child is 7 years old or older and not yet baptized please go to our RCIA page

Homeschool

Parents are called to be the primary educators of their children in the faith.  Parents are encouraged and supported in teaching their kids the Catholic faith.  When you feel your child is ready for a sacrament please contact Justyna Baustert to schedule an interview.  The family must also be attending Mass faithful every week and should be known to the pastor.  The Pastor will interview the child and confirm that he/she is prepared to receive sacraments.

Materials are available to assist parents in their preparation.  Please contact Justyna Baustert by email, at 970-939-5872.
