Catechetical Sunday

"Safeguarding the Dignity of Every Human Person." 

This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 20, 2015, and will focus on the theme "Safeguarding the Dignity of Every Human Person." Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.


Cathedral Chorale

The Cathedral of St. Peter has openings in the Cathedral Chorale. We are seeking singers in all voice parts. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings (6:30 - 8:30 p.m.) and Sunday Masses are 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on alternate weeks. Additional rehearsals and services for Christmas and Holy Week. Previous choral experience and sight-reading skills are helpful, but not necessary. The Cathedral Chorale strives for excellence in musicianship, while leading our faithful in song and performing sacred works which inspire the prayer life of our assembly. For more information, contact Director of Music & Liturgy, Gregory Buchberger at 815-965-2765 x103 or gbuchberger@cathedralofstpeter.org
