Junior Soccer League Ministry at St. Peter’s in Pasadena Seeks Sponsors

Junior Soccer League Ministry at St. Peter’s in Pasadena Seeks Sponsors

During the pandemic children at St. Peter’s, Pasadena, were affected emotionally and physically by the isolation they suffered due to the closure of schools and churches.

On their own initiative, lay church leaders started a mixed junior soccer league for boys and girls between the ages of 7-13.

This new ministry has brought new energy to St. Peter’s and has also managed to connect the men and youth of the church. Surprisingly, most of the families and their children are not members of the parish.

The goal of this new ministry is to create a safe space where children learn to develop their social skills and make new friends. Teamwork and respect among colleagues are practiced. Bonds between families are strengthened. Physical activity and fun are encouraged.

“Our mission is to serve our community in a holistic way, body, mind, soul and spirit,” said the Rev Pedro Nel Lopez, vicar of the church. "This work would not be possible without the help of volunteers and sponsors. The boys and girls of our community are the present and the future of our communities and churches. Make a difference in the lives of these children by joining this ministry as a mentor or making a donation."
