Middle School & High School Faith Formation

EDGE - Powerful Middle School Ministry

Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find a solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.

Each night begins with a game or activity relating to the night’s topic. A catechetical teaching is followed by small group discussion so the students learn how the teachings apply to their lives. Each night ends with the students experiencing prayer in a deeper way.

EDGE meets on Sundays from 2:00 to 3:30 pm in our parish hall.

For more information about the EDGE program, contact Desiree Arenas at 681-5063 ext. 27.

RCIA FAITH FOrmation

ADULTS AND CHILDREN
Welcome to the RCIA process at Prince of Peace Catholic Church!

RCIA is the way adults are formally received into the Catholic Church. It is for:  Non baptized persons, those baptized into another Christian denomination, and baptized Catholics who have had no religious education. Participants are prepared for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. We also welcome those Catholics who are just looking to be enriched in the faith.

R.C.I.A. Adapted for children is a process for children age 7 and older who are not baptized as well as baptized children in the third grade or above who have not received First Communion. Sessions are held on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm weekly. Spanish sessions are available for both adults and children.

For more information, or to begin the RCIA process please contact Barbara Forde at 210-681-5063 Ext. 22 or bforde@princeofpeacecatholic.org to meet with her regarding RCIA.

Adults unable to attend RCIA Sessions because of work/school schedule? Worry no more because we have the answer.

Prince of Peace will now offer on-line sessions for those who would like to prepare for sacraments but cannot attend on Wednesday evenings when we have our regular sessions.  For these folks we have a new on line process which will enable you to receive your sacraments at Easter with the regular RCIA class.For more information, please contact Barbara Forde at 210-681-5063 x 22.

Please note that these sessions are only for those who cannot attend regular Wednesday sessions.
