St Peters History
The Observance of Saint Peter, a remarkable Catholic event, seeks to pay homage to one of the most revered apostles of Jesus Christ. Known as the rock upon which Christ built his church, Saint Peter holds a significant position in Christianity as the first Pope and Bishop of Rome. Leading the disciples through tumultuous times and playing a pivotal role in spreading Christ's teachings, the observance offers a chance to remember and appreciate this legendary figure and his tireless service to the Christian faith.
