Mission Statement

Community of St. Peter

Preserving and Renewing a Living Tradition

Mission:

We are a Catholic community.  Our sharing of the Eucharist and the Word challenges us to live the message of Jesus: to love and respect all people, to serve the poor, and to work for peace and justice.

Values:

  • Liturgical Life: Worship is central to the life of our community and we dedicate our talents and resources to it.
  • Spiritual Development: The strength of our community is based in the spiritual vitality of our members.
  • Inclusivity: We are open and welcoming to all.
  • Education: We deepen our knowledge through education of our members and the wider community.
  • The Arts: We promote and support creative artistic expression.
  • Commitment to the City: Our history and our presence in Cleveland call us to serve our neighbors in need.
  • Friendship: We value time together and promote bonds of personal support.
  • Collaboration and Partnering: We strive to cooperate with others to fulfill our mission.
  • Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue:  We honor the contributions of faith communities across our society and seek greater understanding and cooperation with them.
