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.

The officers for the parish council for the coming year: President, Maureen Garrigan; Vice President, LeRoy Brockelsby and Secretary, Matt Finnegan.

Don’t forget the parish picnic is after the Noon mass today. The meat, baked beans, drinks and table service are provided. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Come and have a great time.

Confirmation classes will begin on Wednesday, September 3. The 10th grade students will meet at 6:15 p.m. in the social and the 11th grade students will meet at 7:15 p.m. We are starting a new confirmation program for the 10th graders. This confirmation program is one that was developed by Matthew Kelly and his staff. I have been working on it all summer. One of the deacons reviewed the program and thought that it would be a great program for adults. We are also instituting an adult part of the program. This should be a tremendous experience for our students and parents.

We will have sign up for working Oktoberfest on the last weekend of August and the first two weekends of September. Oktoberfest is one of the great celebrations of our parish. We will begin selling chances on the car next weekend. The car is a BMW, Z-3, convertible. This is one of the neatest cars that we have ever had and it is the first time that we have had a BMW.

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.
