Because of the snow emergency, the rectory office is closed today, Thur, Mar 5.

Mass today, Mar 5, will be celebrated at 7am and 12:10pm, with confessions at 11:30am only. There will be NO Holy Hour or evening confessions, no parish meetings or activities. St. Peter School is closed today.


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!

Lenten Small Groups Registration is now Open!

Small Groups registration is now open.

Small Groups meet in homes for 6-8 sessions to study the faith while forming lasting friendships. St. Peter’s purchases the study materials and donations toward this cost (typically no more than $24) are gratefully accepted.

This season’s featured study programs are:

  • “Priest, Prophet, King” by Word on Fire. In Priest, Prophet, King, you'll discover Jesus as the Anointed One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Father Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
  • A Biblical Walk Through the Mass” by Dr. Edward Sri, Ascension Press. Learn the meaning behind the words and symbols of the liturgy. You'll never experience the Mass in the same way again!
  • “A Quick Journey Through the Bible” by Jeff Cavins, Ascension Press. This study takes you on a chronological expedition of salvation history that reveals God’s plan for His Creation.
  • “When Faith Feels Fragile” by Fr. Scott Hurd of Washington DC. Learn about faith and the four categories of steps you can take to renew and strengthen your faith.

We are now open for registration / sign up for our classes.  We have 10 Groups with options for almost everyone’s schedule. To sign up and join a group use the following link:

If you have any questions call or email Garry.  Don’t miss out on this wonderful Saint Peter’s offering and opportunity.

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

As we enter Lent, St. Peter's is ready to launch Flocknotes - a new communications platform for parishioners to receive text messages about church activities and needs.  We will not bombard your phone with facts of the day or pictures of kittens, but will send targeted texts like reminders about upcoming events like the St. Patrick's Mass on March 14, reminders about Holy Days of Obligation, and needs as they arise (for example if there is an urgent need for certain items at the Pope Francis Center).

If you would like to sign up for this new service online, you may visit our sign-up page, or text PeterDC to 84576 from your phone.

Sunday School is not just for kids...

All adults are invited to join our Dominican Brothers Thomas More and Dominic as they host discussions covering a wide range of topics of contemporary theological relevance. Sun mornings, 10:30 - 11:30am, in the O'Sullivan Room (rectory, lower level). Classes are free and there is no registration.  Drop-ins are welcome! Check out the Adult Sunday School schedule Spring 2015.

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.
