We Are a Thriving Parish
St. Peter Catholic Church is dedicated to the restoration of the sacred, the active promotion of the Gospel and fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. A home to both English- and Spanish-speaking peoples, the church building is located on the outskirts of Omaha's downtown.
St. Peter parishioners come from all over Omaha and beyond because they are attracted to the parish's beautiful liturgies, uncompromising proclamation of the Gospel and friendly community. The parish provides catechesis for every age and much-needed relief to the poor and hungry; it is also a home for recent immigrants.
The parishioners of St. Peter Catholic Church believe the renewal of the Church will come primarily through the worthy and obedient celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice, the "source and summit of the Christian life" (Lumen Gentium, §11).
With sung Masses, four choirs specializing in chant, Mass parts in Latin, Masses celebrated both ad orientem and ad populum, altar boys, Eucharistic Exposition, the recitation of the Prayer to St. Michael after Masses, chanted Solemn Vespers on Sundays, and Holy Communion at the altar rail, St. Peter Catholic Church strives to celebrate the Sacred Liturgy within the centuries of rich Catholic tradition.

Urgent Need for Congress to Enact the Conscience Protection Act of 2016
On June 21, 2016 a ruling by the federal Health and Human Services (“HHS”) Office of Civil Rights allowed California to continue forcing health plans to cover abortions has prompted the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to call for an immediate federal remedy. That remedy is the CPA which will protect healthcare providers from being forced to pay for or participate in abortions, and allow victims of discrimination a “right of action” to defend their rights in court. The CPA will make it even more clear that sponsors or providers of health plans that do not include elective abortion cannot be discriminated against. In a bipartisan 245-182 vote, House members passed the Consicence Protection Act on July 13, 2016. Now it has been referred to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Government should not force hospitals, doctors, nurses and other providers to stop offering much-needed health care because they cannot in good conscience participate in destroying life by elective abortion.
