Welcome to St. Peter's
At St. Peter the Apostle University and Community Parish, we hope to keep Jesus Christ as our reference point for everything. A living relationship with our Lord is essential so as to discover the joy, hope, peace, love, freedom and life for which our hearts yearn.

The Season of Lent
Lent is the season of mercy, an annual retreat for the Church to repent and reconnect with the surpassing gift of God's love. In addition to our Lenten Mission (see below), opportunities abound for entering into the grace of the season.

Confession will be available on Saturdays during Lent, from 11 am-12 noon (two priests) and 4-4:45 pm.

The decree of Bishop Paul G. Bootkoski, officially designating St. Peter's as the University Parish for the Catholic community at Rutgers, took effect on January 1, 2014. What does that mean for us?
