“The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’ ‘The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself.’” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, nr. 1324)
The most important thing a Catholic does all week is participate at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
At St. Peter’s the weekend Masses are as follows:
Sunday 9am, 11am (Sign Interpreted), and 5pm
Weekday Masses are 7am and 12:10pm Monday-Friday. Daily Mass on Saturday is at 8am.
On Federal Holidays:
Mass at 8am only, with no confessions.
On Holy Days of Obligation:
Vigil 5:30pm; on the Holy Day 7am, 12:15pm, 6:30pm - PLEASE CHECK THE HOME PAGE OR THE PARISH BULLETIN FOR ANY CHANGES.
In order to prepare well to receive Communion, Catholics are encouraged to receive Confession regularly, and always when they are conscious of having committed a mortal sin. An examination of conscience may help you prepare for confession, such as the one found here. We also have examinations of conscience and guides for confession at the back of church.
The Confession schedule at St. Peter’s is as follows:
Monday to Friday 11:30am-12pm
Monday to Wednesday 6-6:30pm
(And any time by appointment.)
