Bereavement Committee

We are asking for help for members to join the bereavement teams. These teams prepare a meal after the funeral for the family of a deceased parishioner of our parish. You may be called upon every 6 to 7 months to bring a side dish. We can work with all schedules. The dish you bring can be cooked, baked, or purchased.

Please sign up in the vestibule of the church. If you are a member already, thank you! There is no need to sign up again. If you always wanted to help and didn’t know how, here’s your chance. Please consider this rewarding ministry. Thank you!

Attention all Parishioners!

Do you feel like there is something missing in your life? Would you like to walk closer to Jesus Christ, but do not know where to start? Would you like to join a community that meets once a month and whose whole purpose is to bring you closer to God and pray with other community members?

We invite ALL CATHOLICS to join the New Iberia Chapter of Lay Carmelites every First Sunday of the month at 1:30 PM-4:00 PM in the Conference Room at St. Peter’s Catholic Church. You may come to just listen and see what we are all about; no commitment is needed. Please call Penny Colwart at 256-4862 for more information.

Are you a Parishioner of St. Peters?

St. Peters Church and Cemetery

St. Peter’s Catholic Church is seeking volunteers to give guided tours to our beautiful church and cemetery!

You would attend 3 training classes on Saturday, November 3rd, 10th and 17th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

You would learn the history of the church, its architecture, the history of the statues, the stained-glass windows, the altar and other beautiful elements of our church. All proceeds would be for the upkeep and beautification of the church. Tours will be given monthly or bi-monthly to start.

If you are interested in becoming a guide (either once or twice a month) please contact the Parish Office at 369-3816 for more information or to sign-up.

Prayer for the Safety of Men & Women of the Military

Almighty and eternal God, those who take refuge in you will be glad and forever will shout for joy. Protect these soldiers as they discharge their duties. Protect them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm. May the power of your love enable them to return home in safety, that with all who love them, they may ever praise you for your loving care. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Seminarians

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, I pray that you call many worthy souls to your holy priesthood. Enlighten the Bishop and Vocation Director in the choice of candidates, the Spiritual Directors in molding them, and the professors instructing them. Lead the seminarians daily in your unerring footsteps, so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom, and heroes of sacrifice. May they be steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man, apostles of your glory and sanctifiers of souls. Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us. Amen
