Welcome to Our Church
Through the grace of God and the commitment of the Catholic Community, we a parish devoted to imitating the life of Christ, as proclaimed in the Holy Gospels, offer a gathering place for worship, service, and fellowship for all.
As ambassadors for Christ, we serve the faithful, those who have strayed from the faith, and those who are not members of the faith community so that all may be reconciled to God.

ARISE! Together in Christ Season IV!
As we begin 2020, we once again have an opportunity to attain a greater understanding of our faith and a stronger relationship with the Lord by participating more fully in parish life and inviting others to join in. To accomplish this, Bishop Mark has requested our continued participation in Arise Together in Christ. A year and a half ago, we introduced the ARISE Together in Christ spiritual renewal process in our diocese and in our parish. About 150 parishioners of St. Peter’s participated in ARISE! by joining a small faithsharing group. Those who took part reported having a positive and enriching experience which brought them closer to the Lord. We will continue ARISE! this Lent, beginning in February and continuing for six one-week sessions. All parishioners are invited to join, whether you were part of a small group last Fall or not. ARISE enables people to deepen their faith, develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community and reach out in service to others.
Why is St Peter participating in ARISE? Because in these difficult and even painful times we need to be renewed as a parish, we need to welcome back those who have been distanced from the Church, and we need to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ through our active commitment to charity and justice. Why not be part of something that promises to have a positive effect on the renewal of the Catholic Church in our diocese? ARISE Season IV is open to anyone. Your ARISE Parish Team representatives are Juliann Isgan (814)279-5390 or Mary Herwig (814)521-4743, Sign Ups will continue until Sun., Feb. 8. Season IV will begin the week of Feb. 16 and will last through week of Mar. 29. Please follow us on Facebook-St. Peter’s Church-Somerset, PA, Instagram-St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Somerset, PA.
