Faith Formation at St. Peter Cathedral
We begin our profession of faith by saying, "I believe." We must ask what "to believe" means. Faith is our response to God who has personally revealed Himself to us in Jesus Christ. Faith involves a process of searching for God, encountering Him, and finally responding with my whole life. The following parish programs assist people in the various stages of faith:

High School Faith Formation (grades 9-12). Students acquire a deeper and more
advanced understanding of the teachings of our Catholic faith Students attend
both large and small group sessions on alternating weeks. Large group sessions
allow for nights of prayer, devotion, catechesis on special topics, or other
special events. Small group sessions, either on site here at the Cathedral or
in family homes, offer the advantages of small faith communities and allow for
more intensive catechesis. Students also have ample opportunities to
participate in service to the Church and the people of God, to attend Special Events such as the
diocese P2K youth rally, Youth Encounter, the Steubenville North Youth
Conference, and the annual March For Life in
. Large groups meet Sunday nights from
7:15pm until 8:30pm, (after the 6:00pm Mass) from September through May. Small
group meeting times vary. (Registration materials will be available on the
Special Events page as they become available.)
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process by which adults become
full members of the Catholic Church.
