Learn About Priesthood?
We hope that every young man will seriously consider whether God might be calling him to serve the Church in the priesthood! The priests at St. Peter’s Cathedral are eager to discuss vocations, answer questions, and offer guidance. Please call Fr. Nicholas Junker, Director of Vocations for the Diocese, (618) 722.5035.
Join the Parish?
Registering as a member of the Cathedral Parish only takes a moment. Just call the parish office at (618) 234-1166. The office is open Mon-Fri, 9:00 to 4:00.
There’s a lot going on at Cathedral Parish. Much of it can be explored on this website under the headings “Worship, Formation, and Outreach.” From the education of our children to ministry of care for our homebound, from lectors at Mass to cooks for funeral luncheons, there is something for everyone!
Become a Catholic?
Joining the Catholic Church as an adult happens through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). These sessions begin in September and take place most Sundays at noon for about an hour until Easter. If those times are not possible, other arrangements can be made. No commitment is needed to come and see! If interested, please call Sr. Theresa at (618) 234-1166.
Learn About My Faith?
It’s been remarked that Catholicism is “ever so much bigger from the inside than from the outside.” Our two thousand years of tradition and heritage provide inexhaustible riches for anyone who cares to explore and learn. The Cathedral parish offers various formation and education opportunities, many of which are described on the Formation page.
