If you have been away from the Church for a while, know that St. Peter’s is always ready to welcome you home.  St. Peter’s is a warm community of faith and committed to helping anyone and everyone draw closer to Christ through the Catholic Church.  We hope that you will consider coming to Confession and Mass to begin your journey home, or think about contacting a priest to discuss whatever may be keeping you away.  We miss you and hope to see you soon!

A special welcome to our Easter and Spring Break visitors!

Welcome to St. Peter’s parish and to Capitol Hill!  
St. Peter’s has been a part of the City of Washington and the history of our nation since 1820. We're delighted you stopped in to see us.
And if you or someone you know is having trouble finding a way back to the faith, we invite you to visit Catholics Come Home, a website dedicated to providing help and encouragement. As their site says: “Our Catholic faith is the largest Christian family in the world. Our Church is a vibrant and growing family, but we miss our brothers and sisters who have not been to Mass lately. Saint Augustine, a convert to the faith at age 33, once said, ‘You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.’ Jesus wants to invite you back into His big, warm and loving Catholic family in the Church He founded 2,000 years ago. He’s calling you home, but the choice is yours… We are family. We’ve missed you. Welcome home!”
Now that you've found our website, feel free to browse around, or call or e-mail us at the Rectory for more information or with any questions you might have. Visit the Staff section for e-mail information. Catholics can always come home.

St. Peter's News & Alerts on your Phone!

St. Peter's announces the launch of Flocknotes - a new communications platform for parishioners to receive text messages about church activities and needs.  We won't bombard your phone with facts of the day or pictures of kittens, but we will send targeted text reminders about upcoming events like the Holy Week liturgies, reminders about Holy Days of Obligation, and parish and ministry needs as they arise (for example if there is an urgent need for certain items at the Pope Francis Center). To sign up for this new service online, visit our sign-up page, or text PeterDC to 84576 from your phone.
