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.

A Bible Study on “The Chosen” to begin September 29th

St. Peter’s Catholic Church will begin a Bible Study based on the video series “The Chosen.”  What is the “The Chosen?”  “The Chosen” is an award-winning Internet series that is sweeping the world, with more than 260 million views.  Based on the gospel stories with which we are already familiar, this series portrays the early Apostles in a more human light.  Come join us as a faith community to view each episode and participate in a facilitated discussion. 

If you haven’t yet seen “The Chosen,” then you are in store for a real treat.  This series on the life of Jesus Christ combines first-rate acting with an imaginative retelling of the Gospel stories; but how faithful is it to the accounts found in Sacred Scripture?  Most viewers would probably agree that “The Chosen” uses license in an imaginative and skillful way, while still remaining faithful to the Gospel accounts.  You’ll see events from the lives of Peter, Nicodemus, Zebedee, Matthew, and others that do not appear in the Biblical texts.  This is not at all surprising.  Many films on the life of Christ have used dramatic license to some degree in their retelling of the life of Jesus.  The creators of this series manage to weave Scriptural and non-Scriptural elements together into a very cohesive and stimulating whole. “The Chosen” is taking the internet and the world by storm… come and see Jesus as you have never experienced him before!! 

Bible study for Season One of “The Chosen” will begin on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. in the Annex and will be held for 8 weeks.  If you plan to attend, please call the church office during regular business hours to register (814) 443-6574.

Together, Pro-Life Pennsylvania Marches for Life!

Join us for the Pennsylvania March for Life at the Capitol Building in Harrisburg, PA on September 27, 2021. The rally (11 AM) and march (12 noon) will take place on Monday, September 27th, because it is the first day when both the Pennsylvania House and Senate will be back in session in Harrisburg.

The charter bus will leave the St. Peter’s parking lot at 7:30 am and return by 5:00 pm including a dinner stop on the way home. Cost is $25, and sponsored by the St. Peter Church Women's Group

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone to learn about the specific and current issues Pennsylvania is facing, and what you can do right now to champion pro-life policies to your PA elected representatives. We can all be heroes for one day! Heroes are those who confront evil, and with so much evil around us: (abortion on demand, partial birth abortion, human fetal research) we tend to forget what a wonderful time we are living through-- not in spite of the troubles all around us, but precisely because of the troubles. We were made for Heaven. But on this earth, we were made for fighting against evil and we must charge ahead with joy in our hearts that this is the mission we have been given. Join Us!! For more information or to sign up call Kim Stiffler: 814-233-6727.
