Faith Formation

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process of welcoming and forming adults to enter the Catholic Church. Sessions begin in October and are open to anyone who would like to learn more about the Catholic Faith and explore the journey towards initiation into the Church. St. Peter’s is ready to welcome all who are seeking, and no prior knowledge or background is necessary. With God’s guidance, we take this journey together. For more information or to register call the office at 301-334-2202.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

For the 2020-2021 School Year, we will offer an “In-Person” option with safety measures and a “Home Catechesis” option for those who are not comfortable returning to the group setting. Information has been sent to returning families via email. New enrollments should call Kelly at 301-334-2202 or email ReligiousEd@GarrettStPeter.com.



To help us bring faith alive in our homes, Joe Paprocki of Loyola Press has created these awesome one-minute Pop-Up Catechesis videos that give suggestions on everything from Praying at Mealtime to May Crowning at Home.

Click here (or on the picture to the left) to view these short segments which he will post Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for the foreseeable future.

Experience the Unconditional Love Christ Has for You in our new Bible study

No Greater Love

New Bible Study Begins February 15, 2021

We often hear about Jesus’ passion and death, but imagine experiencing them for the very first time. In No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we are going to walk step-by-step with Jesus on his journey from his agony in the garden to his crucifixion on Calvary. Along the way, we will unpack the biblical background to these events, the prophecies, and most especially, the ways Jesus is inviting us to walk more closely with him today. No Greater Love is a five-part Bible study program that begins February 15th from 10am – 11:30am. This is an online Zoom study. For more information or to register, call Kelly in the office. Due to shipping delays, we ask that you register as soon as possible to allow for material to arrive.
