Several years ago, the Vestry of St. Peter's made Youth and Children's Christian Formation a priority for St. Peter's and a staff person was hired as the Youth and Family Minister. The Youth and Family Minister serves the parish in developing, directing and coordinating comprehensive educational and spiritual programming. Lorri Camilleri is our Family Minister (read about Lorri here).
In addition to our Youth Groups and our Sunday morning formation classes, St. Peter's also offers other opportunities for our children and youth such as Acolytes, Lay Readers, Ushers, volunteering as Godly Play Greeters and providing child care.
If you have a child that wishes to participate in any of these activities, please call Lorri Camilleri [645-8479 x202] or email her for additional information. All of our Youth Groups are very much involved in our local communities in outreach programming.
Sunday, November 12
Mission Project and Worship.
The classes will participate in a mission project making ‘blessing bags’ for those affected by the recent disasters in the US, Puerto Rico and Mexico. A large bin is outside of Lorri’s office to collect items for the bags. We need toothpaste, toothbrushes, small shampoos, washcloths, individually wrapped bars of soap, decks of cards, small activity books, crayons, wide tooth combs, $5 gift cards (McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, etc.), socks, chap stick, all-purpose wipes, non-perishable foods (granola bars, raisins, etc.). Dollar Store type items are perfect. Gallon sized re-closable plastic bags. We will assemble the bags on November 12 and then offer them at the LIGHT service in the parish hall that day. We hope you will all help us to help those who have experienced tragedy in their lives.
