Welcome

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.

Welcome to our new pastoral team!

We extend a warm welcome to Father Jonathan Madueke (Interim Pastor), Father Michal Kruszewski and Deacon Thomas Stephenson, our new interim pastoral team appointed by diocese until further notice.

Thank you to Father Allan MacDonald, CC, for serving as our Interim Pastor the last few months. We wish him the best of luck as he moves into his next assignment.

Stations of the Cross – Fridays during Lent

Come and join Father Jonathan every Friday during Lent at 6:30 pm at the parish, as we walk through the fourteen stations of the cross to experience this powerful way to contemplate, and enter into, the mystery of Jesus’ gift of himself to us.
