The Sacrament of Confession is available at St. Peter's Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 12 noon - 4:30 p.m. No appointment needed, just come into the church and find the confessional that is in use.
On Friday, October 3, we will celebrate the traditional Transitus Service beginning in church at 7:00 P.M. This service commemorates St. Francis’ passing from this earth to his heavenly reward. The service consists of hymns, readings, a procession with lighted candles around the block (you may stay in church during this procession if you so choose), and a short homily.
On Saturday, October 4, we will bless pets on the sidewalk in front of church at 11:00 A.M. The service will be relatively short, but we will make sure that any and all pets are blessed, just as Francis did during his days.
On Monday, October 6, we will have a Solemn Mass for the Feast of Francis at 11:40. There will be no 12:15 Mass. The Front Office will be closed and no confessions will be heard nor a priest available for the mezzanine during this Mass in order to allow all the friars to participate. Following the Mass, a luncheon will be served in the St. Clare auditorium for those who can make it. Finally, the day will end with the singing of Solemn Vespers in church at 5:40 P.M.
On Wednesday, October 8, we are having a Communal Penance Service at 12:15. This will take the place of the 12:15 Mass on that day. There will be no confessions in the confessionals from 12:00 until 1:30 on Wednesday.
