Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal

The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal was created by Archbishop Urban J. Vehr in 1965 to accommodate the surge in the number of Catholics relocating to northern Colorado. During the past half century, our archdiocese has witnessed additional population growth bursts. As with any growing family like our spiritual family, known as the Archdiocese of Denver, this blessing of growth creates additional needs and responsibilities. Thankfully, nearly forty archdiocesan ministries that address the social, educational, and pastoral needs of our spiritual family are funded through Appeal proceeds.

The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal funds nearly forty archdiocesan programs. A partial listing includes: Archdiocesan Archives, Black Catholic Ministry, Catholic Charities, Catholic Deaf Community, Centro San Juan Diego, Child and Youth Protection, Hispanic Ministry, Hmong Catholic Community, Kateri Catholic Community, Liturgy Office, Natural Family Planning, Office of Catholic Schools, Parish Support Services, Permanent Diaconate, Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary, Religious Education and Pastoral Care for Persons with Developmental Disabilities, Respect Life Office, Rural Life Ministry, Saint John Vianney Theological Seminary, Social Ministry, Totus Tuus, Tribunal, Vocations, and Youth Ministry.

Stewardship is using our faith, time, talent and treasure to build God’s Kingdom.

God invites each of us into His work of Salvation.  It is through stewardship, using our faith, time, talent, and treasure to build God’s Kingdom, that we respond to God’s blessings in a truly Catholic way.

At St. Peter’s we are deeply aware of the truth that “The Lord’s are the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it” (Psalm 24:1). We know ourselves to be recipients and caretakers of God’s many gifts. We are grateful for what we have received and eager to cultivate our gifts out of love for God and one another.

We are disciples who practice stewardship and recognize God as the origin of life, the giver of freedom, the source of all we have and are and will be.

Bear Catholic is a vibrant community in which students can ask tough questions, build authentic friendship and support one another in living out the journey of faith.

Our 6 pm evening Mass is dedicated to the students and we will serve them dinner afterwords in the Parish Hall.  Please consider getting involved in the Bear Catholic Ministry – this social time among other good catholic students will help our youth to persevere in our Catholic Values and form holy friendships that can last a lifetime.

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.

Matthew 28:19


For the Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls!

Welcome to St. Peter Catholic Church in Greeley, Colorado. At St. Peter’s we stand with our patron in proclaiming Jesus as the “Messiah, the Son of the living God” (Mt 16:26). We do this by living, preserving, and handing on the riches of the faith given to us by Jesus in the Catholic Church, where we encounter truth, beauty, and goodness.

As pastor, I encourage you to allow the beauty of our church to elevate your soul in the Mass and the Sacraments celebrated here.  I encourage you to drink deeply of the wisdom and truth of Jesus as he is encountered in our faith formation programs.  And I encourage you to experience the goodness found in the members of our family here at St. Peter’s.

Please introduce yourself after Mass or come by our office to meet us.

May the Lord bless you abundantly.

In Christ,

Fr. Jim
