Welcome to St. Peter’s Parish, a Roman Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. We, the St. Peter’s Community, are committed to joyfully celebrating and deepening our faith in the Liturgy, nourished by the Word of God and by the Holy Eucharist.

Special mass: December 8

On Wednesday, December 8th, at 7:00 pm, there will be a mass at the parish on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. All are welcome to attend.

Christmas and New Year’s schedule

Christmas Novena – Simbang Gabi – December 16th – 24th, each evening, starting at 6:00 pm

All are invited to nine days of Novena masses for Christmas, starting at 6:00 pm with Holy Hour Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction, Confessions, Rosary, followed by Holy Mass at 7:00 pm. Christmas Novena or Simbang Gabi is a Catholic tradition that is celebrated across the world. It is a significant moment not only because it strengthens relationships among family members and the community, but also because it is a time when our faith is intensified. It is a great source of spiritual nourishment to all of us as we prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Jesus Christ. Invite your families and friends and come share in this wonderful time of Reflection.
