2nd Sunday of Advent
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.

  Advent 2017

We have decided that our charity fundraising (Parish Bazaar, Chef & Spice Fundraising Evening etc) for the coming year from Advent 2017 to Advent 2018 will go to support The Laura Centre and The Bridge: Homelessness to Hope charities.

If you would like to find out more about these charities, or make a donation, please visit their website via the links below.

The Bridge Leicester The Bridge Leicester

The Bridge – Homelessness to Hope is an outreach to the lost and lonely of Leicester, to the homeless and to those who just have nowhere to go and no one to turn to.

The Laura Centre The Laura Centre

The Laura Centre offers specialist bereavement counselling to parents whose child has died and to children or young people who have been bereaved of a parent or significant person.


Reverse Advent Calendar

During Advent, there will be a box at the back of church where items can be placed to donate to Womens Aid Leicestershire. Suggested donations include: toiletries, dried fruit, socks and little gifts.  This initiative is being organised by the Young Adults Group and the Girls Uniformed Groups and is being co-ordinated by Sharon Denston and Mairi-Frances McKay.  Please support their efforts!

Singing for Christmas

We are again this year forming a choir to sing at the Christmas Vigil Mass and to provide some singing in one or two of the local nursing homes. This week we will be practicing on Thursday 14 December in Church at 7.10pm.  Please come and join us!

Christmas Church Clean

Saturday 23 December 12.00 – 2.00pm.   Please consider giving up a bit of time to come and help give the Church a thorough clean before Christmas!  If you are able to bring cleaning materials, step ladders etc it would be a great help.  I take this opportunity to thank our dedicated group of parishioners who clean the church week in and week out.
