Welcome to St. Peter Prince of the Apostles Catholic Church! Thank you for your interest in our parish. Whether you're already part of the St. Peter's community, just visiting us for a brief time, looking for a new parish home, are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we're happy to have you join us here where we Encounter Christ in our worship.
A parish is a community of believers and a spiritual family that is supportive and loving. It can be a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith into action, and to use your gifts of time and talent as a missionary disciple of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have about our parish community. You can contact us at 210-822-3367 or email@example.com to learn more about our ministries and how we can be of service to you. Feel free to visit us any time, you are always welcome!
St. Peter Prince of the Apostles Catholic Church is a dynamic, inviting, and spiritually enriching inner-city parish community. We recognize the call of the Gospel to be a hospitable people, open and eager to welcome into our midst and into our ministries the many people who are part of our diverse community. By developing an interdependence on one another, rooted in a common love of Christ, we seek a unity that is respectful, affirming, and supportive of one another.
Having put God first in our lives, we acknowledge our membership in the Body of Christ. By encouraging and nurturing Christian stewardship, we are joyfully building the kingdom of God in gratitude for all that God has given us.
We are called to fully, actively, and consciously celebrate our faith. As a parish we commit ourselves to be an active and living presence of Christ to one another and to the community that surrounds us.
