Saint Peter’s Church is committed to midtown Manhattan. It helped shape midtown’s soaring skyline with a condominium arrangement that created the urban center at 54th Street and Lexington Avenue, and continues to offer this space as a resource for all who work in midtown’s office towers or street-level restaurants, food carts or stores, as well as for all who sleep in the neighboring apartment buildings or outside on midtown’s streets.
New to religion or returning to it, uncertain of religion or perhaps even fearful of it, this is an open and affirming place for all people. No matter the question or concern about faith and life, Saint Peter’s Church is committed to being a safe space for exploration, growth and conversation.
A pastor is generally available during the daytime and early evening. A variety of programs tailored to enriching life take place at various times throughout the day: liturgies, personal prayer, studies, meetings or concerts.
A thirty-minute mass is offered daily at 12:30 P.M. and on Wednesdays at 6:00 P.M. Open bible and faith conversations/studies take place throughout the week.
A variety of recovering meetings are held daily. Resources for persons with chronic illness or disease are also available.
Saint Peter’s Church houses a senior center, partners with others to provide social services, maintains two rotating art galleries and a permanent collection of fine art, presents classical and jazz concerts and programs, provides rehearsal space to many musicians, and is home to a theatre company.
With prior arrangement, not-for-profits are welcome to use Church space for the good of the community. Saint Peter’s Church is also glad to partner with other organizations in shaping life in midtown: from feeding the hungry to presenting concerts and cultural events.
