Welcome to our website; we are happy that you are visiting with us; let us know if you have any questions about our Catholic ministry. You are invited to worship with us. We are a small friendly, welcoming Catholic congregation. There's a place here for you too!
Finding the "right church" can feel overwhelming. As Christians - we do have choices. We too were looking, and so may we offer to you what we were looking for and then found at Sts. Peter and Paul.
We celebrate Sunday Mass in the beautiful sanctuary located at
St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 808 N. Mason Road, Creve Coeur, MO 63141 (1/2 mile south of Olive Street Road on Mason Road).
