Mission and Vision
We are an ACTIVE, GROWING, WELCOMING, SPIRIT-FILLED Roman Catholic community nourished by the Liturgy to serve God and others.
From its humble beginnings high on a hill in rural Boerne, Texas to today, St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church is a welcoming place for all.
In 1866 a young deacon was saddled with the task of building a Catholic Church in Boerne. This first church served its parishioners well for over 50 years. Due to growth of the town and congregation, a new larger structure was built in 1923.
The “1923 Church” was used for more than 60 years and was eventually outgrown. After much turmoil and compromise a new sanctuary was dedicated in 1999.
St. Peter’s serves both the English and Spanish communities with Mass and ministries.
Weekend Mass times are
Saturday evenings at 5:30 PM
Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM
Spanish Mass is at 12:30 PM and
Sunday Masses conclude with the Life Teen Mass at 5:00 PM.
See our website for more information on how we serve our 8400+ parishioners and our local community.
How blessed we are to be able to walk this earthly pilgrimage with one another as members of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church! No matter what is happening around us - be it family life, the pandemic, challenges in our culture, or social strife - St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church is our haven. It is where we can come together, gather around the Eucharistic table and worship and serve our Lord. It is where we welcome one another, as Christ welcomes us.
It is also the place where we serve one another. Here, united in God's love, we are a visible sign of the Body of Christ, and together we can accomplish amazing things. Nourished by prayer and the Sacraments, members of our parish community are journeying on the path of discipleship and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ each day. We value formation in the faith and sharing our faith with others through service and evangelization. We also know the importance of bringing the love of God to our neighbors through acts of charity and service. Through our many ministries, numbering 118, and our social and service-oriented outreach programs, we put into action the truth stated so eloquently by St. Paul, "Welcome one another as Christ welcomed you." - Romans 15:7
