A core commitment of this parish is for every member to be a confident disciple of Jesus Christ. We want people of every age to possess solid knowledge of the faith. We want every member to have a life of prayer appropriate to age and temperament. We want every member feeling empowered to speak about and live out their faith in homes, offices, and neighborhoods. Here’s what we offer. Click on each to send an e-mail for more information.

Journey to the Center: Every year, Fr. Keith Owen leads this “introduction to Christianity, Episcopal Style” for adults. It is the perfect thing for anyone new to the Christian faith or to the Episcopal Church, or for anyone seeking simply to renew their faith. At Saint Peter’s, “Journey” is the required preparation for sacramental Confirmation or Reception into the Episcopal Church. The minimum age to participate in “Journey” is 14.
Spiritual Direction: We are blessed to have John Carlson on our parish staff. John holds a certificate in Ignatian Spirituality and Spiritual Direction from John Carroll University. He is available for individual or group spiritual direction. He is also a trained mentor in Education for Ministry (EFM), and is eager to begin a group at Saint Peter’s in the near future.
