St Peter and St Paul

Monday 28th June 2021

We've transferred the feast day of Peter and Paul from 29 June to Sunday 27 June as they are important saints - the apostles to the Jews and Gentiles respectively. This is also the time of year in some dioceses for ordinations, so we pray for those being ordained and those celebrating anniversaries this year. Read Fr David's Zoom talk here.
