Are you or someone you know in need of prayers, comfort or a Eucharistic visit?
The Pastoral Visitors, Prayer Shawl and Eucharistic Ministers are ministries here at St. Peter to reach out to the needs of our parish community.  These needs can be prayers in times of sickness.  A visit to those in hospitals or nursing homes.  A friendly card to lift the spirits. The comfort of a prayer shawl.  The ability to receive the Eucharist.  Because we respect your privacy the parish policy requires that you or a family member notifies the church office if you would like to participate in these loving services. By calling the office you give the parish permission to pass your name to one of these ministries. If you know of any of your fellow parishioners who would benefit from one of these services please encourage them to call or have a family member call on their behalf. Contact the church office at 966-8600 to request one of these services.  For more information, please call Kay Komotos with Pastoral Visitors at 314-221-8104.

Walking with Purpose Women's - Enabling women to know Christ through Scripture

Are you interested in getting together with a group of women to explore your faith? You don’t have much Scripture knowledge, but you would like to see how the Scriptures apply to your everyday life? If so, we invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose at St. Peter Parish. Daytime and evening weekly group sessions will start in early October.

Living in the Father’s Love,
our 6-week course is designed for women new to Walking with Purpose as well as those with more Bible study experience.

Walking with Purpose is a Catholic Bible study for women that aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Christ. Through personal study and small group discussions, the group helps to link our everyday challenges with solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church.

Prayer Shawl Group

Attention all knitters and crocheters!

We have started a Prayer Shawl Group to support the Pastoral Visitors Ministry of St. Peter. The mission of this ministry is to reach out to the members of our Parish family who are ill, in nursing homes or lost a loved one, with prayer and support. If you are interested in being a part of the Prayer Shawl Group or have any questions please contact Karen Frome, 314-965-7975 or

If you don't knit or crochet but would like to support the group with donations of yarn or monetary donations to purchase yard for the project, please contact Karen for that information as well. 

Traveling Chalice Program
The Traveling Chalice Program is designed to pray for religious vocations. Parishioners are asked to take the chalice home and display it in a place of honor, where all throughout the week they can notice it. Parishioners will pray around the chalice every night for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Prayers for vocations will accompany the chalice. You can choose which Mass your family would like to receive the chalice. If you are interested in signing up for a week please contact Theresa Finlay at for more information. 

Sts. Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry

On the 3rd Monday of each month, donations will be delivered to Sts. Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry. We will collect checks and cash for the purchase of additional food. Food donations are welcome anytime.

319 East Adams, Kirkwood (block and a half east of the YMCA). Please donate cans that are no larger than 30 ounces, anything larger is difficult to carry for all of us. 


Rosary for the USA
Yes, we’re praying for bishops, priests, the Supreme Court, every citizen, government officials, and all from Alabama to Wyoming! Our causes are for leadership, wisdom, humility, contrition, and honor. We pray that all of our God-given liberties will be respected and protected.

Please join your fellow parishioners every Sunday (except holidays) at 5:00 PM in The Gathering Space in church.
