 Cathedral of St. Peter is a Roman Catholic Church whose mission is that of Jesus Christ: the conversion of sinners and the salvation of souls. This is accomplished by preaching the Gospel, celebrating the Sacraments and evangelizing the world around us.

During the Lenten Season, Cathedral of St. Peters held several different collections for the needs of our local community.  The amout of support that came through our parishioners was remarkable.  We truly have a wonderful group of people who openly give with their hearts!  Those who are benefiting from our collections: Cornucopia, MELD, Carpenter's Place, and St. Elizabeth's Center will be so appreciative and overjoyed.  Thank you so much for representing the Cathedral of St. Peter's so well.

We also would like to thank all of the wonderful people who helped out this Lenten Season with all the extra's the church had going on.  If it wasn't for all of these parishioners, things would not have been nearly as beautiful as they were.  Alot of people put extra time, money, and sweat into making sure this was a beautiful Lenten Season!
