6th Sunday of Easter
Welcome to St. Peter's
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.

Holy SpiritNovena to the Holy Spirit

After the Ascension, the Apostles returned to Jerusalem where they gathered in prayer in the upper room, until the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  “All these with one accord devoted themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus and with his kinsfolk”. (Acts 1:14)

This nine day period of prayer is a model for all the Novenas of the Church.

Pope Leo XIII asked the faithful to celebrate the solemn Novena between the feasts of Ascension and Pentecost.  The Novena, which prays in particular for the unity of Christianity, starts the day after Ascension Thursday and finishes on the eve of Pentecost.  On each day we pray for a renewal of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Although the celebration of the Ascension has been transferred to the Sunday in the diocese of England and Wales, it is still appropriate for us to keep the Novena.  Therefore, there will be brief Novena meditation and prayer (no more than 10 minutes) each day at the following times...

  • Friday 26 May – After 10.00am Mass ‘Knowledge’
  • Saturday 27 May – After 6.30pm Mass ‘Wisdom’
  • Sunday 28 May – 5.00pm ‘Understanding’ Adoration, Rosary and Benediction (30 minutes total)
  • Monday 29 May – After 10.00am Mass ‘Counsel / Discernment’
  • Tuesday 30 May – After 9.00am Mass ‘Fortitude / Courage’
  • Wednesday 31 May – After 9.00am Mass ‘Piety’
  • Thursday 1 June – 6.10pm ‘Fear of the Lord’
  • Friday 2 June – After 10.00am Mass ‘Fruits of the Holy Spirit’
  • Saturday 3 June - 6.10pm ‘Holy Spirit and Vocation’
