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.

Holy week is only ten days away. The schedule for Holy Week services is as follows:
Holy Thursday: 7 p.m.
Mass of the Last Supper Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:
After mass until 9:30 p.m.
Good Friday: Noon and 7:00 p.m.
Holy Saturday: 6:00 p.m. (Please note the time)
Easter Sunday: 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and Noon

We begin our Lenten program with the Mass, stations of the cross at 5:45 p.m. and the soup supper to follow. This years program for the soup suppers is St. Peter’s and Catholic trivia. It should be a lot of fun and I hope that it will be informative and enjoyable for you.

This is a reminder that the sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered on Saturday from 3:00 to 3:40 p.m. The sacrament of reconciliation will be after every mass through Palm Sunday. I wish to encourage everyone in the parish to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation.

The stations of the cross and benediction will be held each Friday during Lent at 5:30 p.m.

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.
