Sunday School

Q: Will you be responsible for seeing that the child you present is brought up in the Christian faith and life? A: I will, with God’s help.

– Vow made by parents at the Rite of Holy Baptism (Book of Common Prayer, p. 302)

In the Episcopal Church, it is the parent’s responsibility to educate children in the faith, a promise that parents make at the baptism of their child.  St. Peter’s through its Sunday School and other education programs, seeks to support and compliment the work of the parents in bringing up our youth in the Christian tradition.   Parents are encouraged to register and bring their children to Sunday School every week and to utilize the materials the children bring home to continue that education throughout the week.
