St Peter's Roman Catholic Church

The Saint Peter’s Catholic Church is found North of the artpark where the Hopwell site is located and just north where the Presbytarian church is located. It is found in the historic village of Lewiston. The Saint Peter’s Catholic Church is a spacious room with very high ceilings. On the outside the church is made out of brick. The St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church mission statement is “We, the members of St. Peter Parish (St. Peter & St Bernard Roman Catholic Churches), are committed to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We pledge our lives to Christ through the intercessions of St. Peter & St. Bernard and covenant with each other to demonstrate His Spirit through worship and ministering to the needs of our parishioners and our communities.” At this worship site you can involve yourself in the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church. For example, you can get baptized, you can get reconciled, you can partake in confirmation classes, and you can get married. At the church you can attend mass and services. You can involve yourself in prayer groups. In addition you can take part in donating. Lastly, you can involve yourself in the music for the ministry. You can go to church and enjoy the choir along with the instruments performing during mass. Music is a part of mass in the churches of the Roman Catholics. Music during mass has been around for a while. The music is most enjoyed during the holiday times (closer to Christmas) where the choir will sing. For example, in a New York Times article written in 1879 it is described that at Grace’s Chappell on Christmas Eve, the midnight mass, Miss L. Fritsch, soprano and the large choir followed in the beautiful anthem of “O holy night”(NY times 1879). Throughout the midnight mass and at the end of the mass the choir and Miss L. Fritsch performed “How beautiful the feet of those who preach the gospel in peace”. The carol followed with “Softly, sweetly, float the strains” and lastly the services closed with “Hosanah hosanna loud glorious raise”. These are just some examples of how music in mass is something worth checking out and especially powerful closer to christmas.
