Baptismal Preparation

This program is designed to prepare parents and godparents for the Sacrament of Baptism for their child.  The sessions are held monthly in the Rectory Meeting Room, lower level of the Rectory.  Baptism is a significant time in a family’s life, recognizing God’s gift of life and renewing their own baptismal promises.  Parents learn about their commitment to foster the life of Christ in their children.

More information is available in the sacrament section of the web site 

Bible Study

Saint Jerome: Priest and Doctor, Father of Biblical Science, Teacher of Obedience
said these famous words:  “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ."

St. Peter Damian offers excellent programs for our parishioners to learn about the Holy Scripture.
Please call the parish office or look on the website for these programs.

Children Liturgy of the Word / Adult Leaders

We invite the children at the 9:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday to participate in the Liturgy of The Word for Children.  After the opening of the liturgy, children 3 through 9 years old are invited to Hardy Hall.  During the time the adult assembly hears the Word of God, the Scripture is presented to the children on their level.  After all have heard the Word of God, the children rejoin their parents and the parish community for the remaining celebration.
