Spiritual Practices + 21-Day Prayer Challenge
We hope you enjoyed exploring the spiritual practice exercises covered these last few weeks in Faith Forum. We’ve included information from the handouts on the Saint Peter blog for you to reference.
With these spiritual practices in mind, Jeanne Maloney and Pastor Dave are inviting you to take part in a 21-Day Prayer Challenge starting January 7th. If you are interested in enhancing your prayer life, take a moment to learn more.

Theater and Theology is a fun night out with your Saint Peter friends to watch a play together and have a theological talk-back after the show with the cast and crew. The plays and discussions can challenge and stimulate our faith in a unique way. Learn more here, and sign up before January 8th!
