We welcome you to join the social justice ministries and service opportunities that exist not just for our parish but for our neighborhood and beyond. Please see the list of opportunities on the right for details on how you can be a part of our mission.

The Knights of Columbus are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, Patriotism and defense of the Priesthood. The Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle Council #11302 of the Knights of Columbus has been serving the Parishes of St. Peter, St. Dominic, St. Joseph, and St. Vincent de Paul since 1994. The Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on Earth. It is firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family. It was on these bedrock principles that The Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney founded the Order over a century ago and remains true to them today.

Make and/or distribute bag lunches to homeless persons on Capitol Hill after the 11am Mass on the third Sunday of every month. Bring a lunch to Mass and put it in the cart in the back of church.

St. Peter’s Haiti ministry sells fairly-traded products after all Masses the second weekend of each month. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. All profits go to support our twinned parish, Notre Dame d’Altagrace in Cap Haitien, Haiti. Volunteers are needed to staff the sales table. On-the-job training during the coffee sale! We especially need volunteers to sell after the 5pm Saturday and Sunday Masses
