Announcement of Changes in Our High School and Confirmation Programs

These last months of the pandemic have caused many of our activities and ministries to come to a brief halt. However, the parish staff and ministry teams have been working behind the scenes to prepare for the year ahead. One of these areas is religious education. As we look to the next academic year, we will be having a few changes in our high school religious education program as well as our Confirmation program. Specific information regarding times and dates will be announced in the next few weeks.

Beginning this August, Mr. Kevin Judice will now be the head of our newly formed "Teens for Christ". This program is very much in the style and spirit of LifeTeen. High School teenagers (9th - 12th) grade will be invited to be a part of this program in lieu of classroom learning. This program will concentrate on faith development as well as catechesis. The "Teens for Christ" will be available for students who attend public school, non-Catholic private schools and who are home schooled. This program will replace their requirement for CCD. In addition, students attending Catholic schools are also invited and encouraged to attend. This will be a dynamic program which will encompass faith, learning and community.

Mr. Justin Conover will be our new Confirmation Coordinator and teacher. I would like to personally thank Sr. Mary Peter for the past five years in which she has been a rock of faith and steadfast instructor for our Confirmation students. Sr. Mary Peter has asked to discontinue this ministry in order to better fulfill the commitment to convent life. Teaching both First Communion and Confirmation along with the other beautiful projects that Sister does for our parish puts a strain on convent life. We must remember that we can easily expect the Sisters to do so many things for us because they do them so well. However, for the Religious Sister, it may be vocation first and apostolate second.

Mr. Conover enters this ministry of Confirmation Coordinator and teacher with a wonderful relationship that he already has with students. Both Justin and Kevin teach at Catholic High and are well respected as teachers and youth ministers. I am confident that each of them will continue to bring forth the continuity that Sister Mary Peter has instilled in the importance of faith development and excellence in teaching.

FORMED on the Catholic Faith

Formed. Free Catholic Videos, Movies, eBooks and MP3s

Our lives have changed in the blink of an eye! Each day, new restrictions are placed on us in light of COVID—19. Activities that we once took for granted have now become prohibitions – Mass, school, work, social activities, etc. We now may find ourselves relying on television, computers, Facebook, etc. for information and entertainment. Let me propose an alternative for you. As a parishioner of St. Peter, you have access to FORMED at no charge to you. FORMED gives you unlimited access to the best eBooks, talks and videos in the Church today – you simply need to sign up. There is content for all age groups. You need only to go to FORMED.org and register by either locating St. Peter Church of New Iberia or using the code ZBR3Y7. Once registered, you can view movies, have access to eBooks, view videos with your children, etc.

For the next couple of weeks or more, we will be bombarded with the effects of COVID-19. Take solace in knowing that God is with us during these trying times. When it is time to escape, take the opportunity to discover the lives of the saints, share a light-hearted video with your children or read one of the classics. If all we will have is time in the next few weeks, why not use it wisely and maybe get tuned in more with our wonderful faith.

Through its online platform and free mobile apps for iOS and Android, FORMED has helped individuals and communities know, love and share their Catholic faith.

Check it out.
