Rescheduling of First Communion and Receiving RCIA Candidates into the Church

Now that our community is back in church for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we are rescheduling two of the important sacramental events that had to be delayed. The following information is being made available in order that our community can join in the rescheduled celebrations and lift in prayer those parishioners who had to delay the reception of the sacraments.

First Communion - The First Communion Mass previously scheduled for April 26th will be celebrated at a special Mass next weekend, May 31st, at 9:00 am. An additional Mass is being offered in order for our First Communion families to have more invited guests than would be permissible during a regularly scheduled Mass. Each child will be given a designed number of guests who can be invited. The names of the invited guests will be checked at the entrance of the church. Only those individuals will be allowed in the church for this celebration. This will ensure that we do not exceed the maximum of the 25% of the allowed capacity for St. Peter’s.

RCIA - The reception into the Church of those RCIA candidates which would have taken place at the Easter Vigil will be celebrated next weekend, May 31st, at the 11:00 am Pentecost Mass. This will include the administering of the Sacrament of Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist for those seeking full communion in the Catholic Church.

Please join us in prayer as we prepare to joyfully celebrate these important sacramental events with our beloved parishioners.

FORMED on the Catholic Faith

Formed. Free Catholic Videos, Movies, eBooks and MP3s

Our lives have changed in the blink of an eye! Each day, new restrictions are placed on us in light of COVID—19. Activities that we once took for granted have now become prohibitions – Mass, school, work, social activities, etc. We now may find ourselves relying on television, computers, Facebook, etc. for information and entertainment. Let me propose an alternative for you. As a parishioner of St. Peter, you have access to FORMED at no charge to you. FORMED gives you unlimited access to the best eBooks, talks and videos in the Church today – you simply need to sign up. There is content for all age groups. You need only to go to and register by either locating St. Peter Church of New Iberia or using the code ZBR3Y7. Once registered, you can view movies, have access to eBooks, view videos with your children, etc.

For the next couple of weeks or more, we will be bombarded with the effects of COVID-19. Take solace in knowing that God is with us during these trying times. When it is time to escape, take the opportunity to discover the lives of the saints, share a light-hearted video with your children or read one of the classics. If all we will have is time in the next few weeks, why not use it wisely and maybe get tuned in more with our wonderful faith.

Through its online platform and free mobile apps for iOS and Android, FORMED has helped individuals and communities know, love and share their Catholic faith.

Check it out.
Parish Code: ZBR3Y7
