Our Services

What are services like?
the traditional liturgy and music of the Roman Catholic Church, full adult choir and youth choir from St. Peter Cathedral School. Music at all Masses except Sunday 6:30 a.m.

What is the community like?
Drawing from almost everywhere in Erie County and city, the congregation numbers over 900 registered parishioners. The Cathedral is an intentional parish; any Catholic in the area may join.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All seekers and believers are welcome. However, sharing in the sacrament of the Eucharist follows the guidelines for the Catholic Church: reception of Holy Communion is for Catholics only, and they must be properly disposed and in the stare of God's grace, reconciled.
