Welcome to St. Peter's!

Observing the Season of Lent

The season of Lent is a beautiful and challenging time for us to renew our commitment to living as disciples of Jesus, to ongoing conversion and growth in holiness, and to serving the Lord in our brothers and sisters. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this blessed time as we journey together towards our celebration of the Paschal Mystery.
