3rd Sunday of Advent – Gaudete (Rejoice) Sunday
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.
