Welcome to Saint Peter's Catholic Church

A Country Church In The City

As a family, Saint Peter's Catholic Community is committed to the gospel of Jesus--love, justice and mercy. We express these values and utilize our talents by the celebration of the sacraments, on-going education, fellowship, and service to each other, and to the larger community of Council Bluffs, the Diocese and the Universal Church.

We are celebrating the feast of the presentation with the blessing of candles. The blest candles are a reminder of Jesus being the new light and when He was presented in the temple Anna and Simeon realized that this was the promised messiah. We have blest candles in the front of the church and you can take as many as you wish. We ask for a $3.00 for each candle to offset the cost of the candles. These candles are a wonderful reminder to pray for our needs.

Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday, February 1 at 4:00 p.m. There is one big challenge that we have and that is it is Super Bowl Sunday. The first thing is that I invite all of you to attend confirmation. For the first time confirmation was very well attended last year. I know that Bishop Pates was very impressed with the attendance by the participation by the parish. I always look upon all of the celebrations of the sacrament as an opportunity to grow in God’s grace. So please attend confirmation we need to have a full church.

This is just a reminder that all daily masses will be at the St. Francis Worship Center until Ash Wednesday, February 18.

This is just a reminder that we have a prayer board in the front of the church. If you have a need or someone you wish to be prayed for please put a note on the board so that our parish community can pray for your intention.

Men’s Prayer Group
The men’s prayer group meets every first and third Thursday of the month. The meetings are from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. in the rectory. These meetings are open to all men of the parish. These meetings always are insightful and wonderful way to grow in faith and meet some great men of faith.

Women’s Prayer Group
The women’s prayer group meets every Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. in the conference room. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow in your faith and to meet some great ladies of faith.
