Service

St. Peter's parish mission is to be a tangible manifestation of Christ living in the community. 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.

Our food donations support the food pantry of our neighbor parish of Holy Name, 920 11th St NE. Anytime you come to church, bring donations of non-perishable food and place them in the crates under the right hand table in the back of the church.  Are you available during the day once a month to deliver our donations to Holy Name?

Catholic Social Teaching

Being a “protector of creation,” as Pope Francis urges us, sounds like an overwhelming task. But there are myriad small steps we can take in that direction. Here’s a list of things to consider doing at home, adapted from material prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and distributed by the Archdiocese of Washington.

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.

St. Peter’s Joins Effort to Help Vulnerable Children

 “Religion that God our Father considers as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” - James 1:27

St. Peter’s Social Justice Initiative is partnering with DC127, a movement of churches united around the children in our city’s foster-care system and those at risk of entering foster care, and we need your help!

Call to Community

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. Lunches are easy to make - just put a sandwich, drink (non-breakable container), fruit, dessert, napkin, in a paper bag.

The first World Day of the Poor will be observed on Sunday, November 19, 2017. In his apostolic letter to close the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis suggested the Catholic Church set aside one day each year when communities can “reflect on how poverty is at the very heart of the Gospel.” He designated this day as the World Day of the Poor and it will be celebrated on the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time each year.
