Children's First Reconciliation

 Saturday, Jan 28th - 11:30AM

Your St. Peter's family offers you our support & many prayers as you continue your spiritual journey by receiving this wonderful sacrament!

"People were bringing little children to him, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, but Jesus was annoyed and said to them: 'Let the little children come to me and do not stop them.' Then he put his arms around them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing." (Adapted from Mk: 13-16)

Dear Parents! I ask you to help your children to grow in faith, I ask you to accompany them on their journey towards First Communion, a journey which continues beyond that day, and to keep accompanying them as they make their way to Jesus and with Jesus.  Please, go with your children to Church and take part in the Sunday Eucharistic celebration! You will see that this is not time lost; rather, it is the very thing that can keep your family truly united and centered. Sunday becomes more beautiful, the whole week becomes more beautiful, when you go to Sunday Mass together. And please, pray together at home too: at meals and before going to bed. Prayer does not only bring us nearer to God but also nearer to one another. It is a powerful source of peace and joy. Family life becomes more joyful and expansive whenever God is there and his closeness is experienced in prayer”.
