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.


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

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.


Click here to visit the At Home With Your Faith resource that the Archdiocese of Baltimore has developed to lead us through this temporary period of distance. You will find wonderful resources such as Daily Readings, Archbishop Lori's Daily Reflections, a guide to Holy Week and other resources to guide you in living your faith at home.

Six Weeks with the Bible Study Group

Begins December 7th on Zoom

Six Weeks with the Bible discussion groups begin again on December 7th and will meet Mondays at 10am online via Zoom. Join Elaine Boyd and Laurie Comp to discuss 2 Corinthians, where we discover an early church struggling with problems that continue to plague Christians today. Paul addresses these problems, but he also shares with us a core, seemingly contradictory, message of the Christian faith: God's power is best felt in our weaknesses. Assistance with technology and Zoom is available. Please contact Kelly at 301-334-2202 to register and for Zoom assistance.
