St. Peter Young Families


St. Peter is a vibrant parish, home to many couples with young children under school age. Without school activities to bring us together, it can be difficult to form relationships with our parish peers. With this in mind, a Young Families group was created to help families with young children get to know each other through social, spiritual, and service events.

Our Goals:

Social: Offer opportunities throughout the year for parents with young children to socialize and form new friendships. (I.e. sports game outings, holiday craft projects and classes of interest to young families)

Spiritual: Offer opportunities throughout the year for spiritual development for parents of young children, including prayer and reflection with their peers.

Service: Offer at least one opportunity each year for young families to conduct a service project and help families who are less fortunate.


The Young Families Group hosts events throughout the year. Some previous events have included:

  • Wine and cheese after Mass social
  • Pumpkin decorating at the Kirkwood Farmers Market
  • Coordinating the collection and packing of items for Haitian Birthing Kits
  • Advent Jesus Seek N Find
  • SLU basketball game
  • Spiritual Date Night
  • Hosting donut Sundays
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Spring Clean Up

If you are interested in meeting other couples with young children in the parish, please email to be added to our e-mail list for information about future events.
