Notes from the Pastor

Get in Step with the Stride of the Savior

After the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving Day, perhaps you were looking forward to a quiet weekend.  On this first Sunday of Advent, however,  Jesus batters our ears with a cacophony of catastrophe.  But the ominous signs of the sun, moon, and stars being shaken from their orbits as these heavenly powers are shaken from their firm orbits are the cosmic drum roll announcing, not a coming catastrophe, but the climactic coming of Jesus Christ at the end of time.  Instead of our having to cringe and cower in fear we hear the command: “Stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.” Read more...

Give the Infant Christ the Gift of Your Prayer

Join us for Sung Vespers in Advent, Sunday evenings starting Nov 29, at 6:30pm. Each service lasts about 25 minutes, and includes three Psalms, a reading from the New Testament, intercessory prayer, and Mary's beautiful prayer, the Magnificat. On Sunday, evening prayer takes on a special joyful solemnity by being chanted as an extra gift to the Lord, on His day. Everyone is invited. Make Advent a little something "more" this year. Details on each service, and how you can be a part of the core group to pray and or sing, can be found here, Sung Vespers in Advent, or from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

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.

Food donations from St. Peter’s parish

Our food donations support the Pope Francis Center at the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in SE DC. The Center helps meet the basic needs of 600 families each month. To best meet the needs of their clients, the Center requests specific items only from this Food Pantry Shopping List. Anytime you come to church, bring any of the requested items and place them in the crates under the right hand table in the back of the church, where you can also find copies of the shopping list.

Having your baby baptized? Let us help you!

The celebration of your baby's baptism is a wonderful time. Family and friends come together to share the joy of welcoming a new member into the family and the faith. Did you know the Catholic Church has certain requirements for being a godparent? Often "godparent" is confused with "guardian" - but their roles are quite different. One is responsible for a child's spiritual upbringing, the other for her or his physical well-being.
There are certain requirements in Canon Law to ensure that godparents are able and ready to take on the task of teaching the faith and providing prayers and support.
