WELCOME TO ST. PETER CATHOLIC CHURCH A Ministry of the Dominican Friars of the Province of St. Martin de Porres
Please note: Our website is regularly updated with additional information and photos.
TODAY: St. Peter Church is a living monument to the Catholic faith, and stands in tribute to the brave Dominicans who, through their compassion and unwavering faith, willingly sacrificed their lives to nurse the victims of epidemics that besieged Memphis in the mid and late 1800's. St. Peter Church has a proud history thanks to the Dominicans and families who have helped to make our parish one of the outstanding historical milestones in Memphis.
St. Peter has grown from a handful of Catholics in its beginning years into a thriving, vibrant congregation of over 650 families. It is our hope that while celebrating the rich history of our parish, that we promote the promise of the future through an increased sense of family, fellowship, and faith.
