Join Our Parish

Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church has a very rich history that dates back to the year 1850, when Archbishop John Baptist Purcell founded a new parish. Our desire as a parish is to continue to minister to the local community and to shine as a welcoming beacon for all.

First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart

Everyone is invited to OLSH for devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the First Fridays of each month. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass starts at 6:30 pm, followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and devotional prayers. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered during this time. The evening concludes at 8:00 pm with prayers of consecration to the Sacred Heart and Benediction.

Sts. Peter & Paul has a Holy Hour from 6:00-8:00 pm on the third Wednesdays of the month. The Sacrament of Penance will be offered.



Septemberfest was a rousing success this year for Sts. Peter and Paul Parish and our Reading Community. The Lord blessed us with wonderful weather for the entire weekend. I know God answered the prayers of our shut-in parishioners whose job I assigned to pray for good weather. A festival this size is not possible without the hard work and dedication of hundreds of workers, volunteers, and patrons; thank you! Thank you to the many members of OLSH who helped us by working and running booths. Finally, a big thank you to our 2017 festival committee who worked for months to ensure a smooth and wonderful weekend: Cody & Sara Gertz, Kris & Desi Ralston, Rick & Michelle Ellison, Dean & Katie Freson, and Jim & Karie Gallo.
