Parish Life

Parish life at St. Peter is vibrant and faith-filled! Please take a moment to review the various Ministries and Groups we have for your involvement and enjoyment.


The Society of Jesus (Jesuits) discerned four priorities to focus on in the next ten years. These apostolic preferences are in agreement with the current priorities of the Church, and acting on them will "do what is for the greater divine service and the more universal good". Click on the image above to see a video (2:46) about the Jesuits' mission in today's world.  The four Apostolic Preferences are listed here:
  1. To show the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment; 
  2. To walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice; 
  3. To accompany young people in the creation of a hope-filled future;
  4. To collaborate in the care of our Common Home.

Stewardship is a Way of Life at St. Peter. We receive God's gifts gratefully; Develop our talents responsibly; Share lovingly with others; and Make a return with increase to God.  Fill out the Stewardship of Time and Talent form here to get involved!

20s & 30s:  Join other Catholics in their 20s and 30s for 5 PM Mass on the 2nd Sunday of the month and social after.

Caring Cooks: The role of a “Caring Cook” is to prepare (or purchase) a meal and deliver it to a parishioner experiencing illness and is homebound. Recipients need not be unable to cook, just in need of a little care and concern. Caring Cooks also provide meals to our St. Peter Jesuits two nights per week. To request this service for a parish member in need, please call the parish office at 704.332.2901, Ext. 212  To volunteer, email Caring Cooks Attn. Moe Cieri
