Welcome to the website of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Leicester. St. Peter's is a vibrant parish on the western side of Leicester City, just outside the city centre. The parish is made up of people originating from many different countries around the world, which reflects the multicultural nature of Leicester City itself, and reminds us of the universality of Christ’s Church.
If you are new to our parish, or have been away for a while, we warmly invite you to be part of our family of faith and help build up the Body of Christ in West Leicester.
Please have a look around the site to find out more about our parish community. We are always looking to add more pages to provide information and reflections on parish events and activities and hopefully some inspiration for our spiritual lives as well.
If you have any comments or questions, or you would like to get more involved within the parish, please feel free to get in touch with Fr John using the contact details under the Contact Us tab. Please also see our Parish Directory for contacts of specific activities.
Since the Second Vatican Council there has been a strong emphasis in the documents on the Liturgy with regards to singing the actual texts of the Mass rather than just singing at Mass. It is now 3 years since we began using the new translation of the Mass. It is now obligatory that only the new translation be used. As yet, we have no setting of the Gloria.
During the summer months we will attempt to remedy this as well as mastering the two alternative acclamations after the Consecration. The basic settings contained in the Missal are printed on the white sheets at the end of the benches in church.
A CD containing the official settings is available at the back of church for those who would like to hear them sung properly and learn them.
You can also play and download the responses below. To save the MP3 files, right click on 'MP3' and 'Save As':
During August there will be one or two opportunities for those who wish to, to practice together. Hopefully in time we will be able to master three or four settings of the Mass.
