About St. Peter


This church stands very close to the WTC site. The beams from the destruction that lay in ruins in the shape of a cross, currently reside right outside the building.

It remains a somber experience to be down there.

  1. My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    This is one of the most beautiful and historic Roman Catholic houses of worship in Manhattan. The sanctuary is impressive and beautiful.

    The celebration of Mass is conducted daily, and the confessional is not a place to fear; the padres are so warm and understanding, they make confession so easy and nothing to be worried of.

    Please stop in and visit the Lord on the altar in the exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament daily after the 1:05 p.m. Mass.

    God bless all who visit this website, and thank you Brother Andrew, for creating it.

    Fraternally yours in Christ,

    Denis the Sinner

  2. Just wondering if you have the old photos of St. Peter's prior to the renovation available for viewing on the site. (It's interesting to compare the difference.) Thank you.

    1. Sorry, i don't think i really visited it until after the renovations. thanks for viewing and reading

  3. Sad it's closing, l attend while going to BMCC

  4. This church has so much history, it goes back to very early NY. A couple years ago when visiting NYC I went to Mass here--a very beautiful church. My mother RIP used to go to Mass here when she worked in the city before she got married, so I felt a certain closeness to her. Thank you for this lovely blog, it is wonderful and inspiring. I also went to confession at St Peter's that day.
