The Importance of Mission


Know Him

Christ engaged people through stories, teachings, and parables and in the process challenged them to think about what they believed to be true about life, forgiveness, each other, God, and so much more.

  • RCIA - Full initiation into the Catholic faith.

  • Adult Faith Formation - Equip people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

  • Religious Education - Education for children in grades K-8 with catechists.

  • Small Groups - Foster intentional community like through study, mutual support, and friendship with fellow parishioners.

  • Bible Study - Men's, Women's, Teen's, and Children's study groups.


Love Him

Christ’s relationship with the Father was deeply rooted in prayer and from this relationship flowed His whole life and ministry.

  • Altar Servers - Children in grade 5 and older assist with Mass.

  • Music Ministries - Serve God and others in His name through music.

  • Lector - Prepare and proclaim God's Word for assigned liturgies.

A Message from Father Tudgay

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


I hope that everyone is filled with gratitude for a year in the past and optimistic about the year ahead. There are always
challenges in our world, which allows the mission of the Catholic Church to reflect the love of Christ in the midst of challenging and
strained circumstances.

As we begin this new calendar year, we will be conducting our annual stewardship renewal program, Cathedral Mission
. Last year, your response to Cathedral Mission Forward in March resulted in an increase in offertory income by $49,972.17
from the previous fiscal year. In addition to the dramatic increase in your generosity, the Cathedral Parish enrolled fifty new households,
making us one of the fastest growing parishes in the Diocese of Scranton. Things are moving in a positive and hopeful direction as the
mission of the Catholic Church finds its renewal in the City of Scranton.

Cathedral Mission Renewed is an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the level of financial support that we provide to the Cathedral Parish. For the fiscal year 2023-2024, we are anticipating a deficit of $66,923.  Like last year, we are taking a very cautious approach to administrative expenses and projecting the need for additional capital investment in our historic and beautiful buildings.  Additionally, this budget includes an expansion of ministerial programming as well as provision for further reduction in diocesan liabilities by $30,000.  

Our Commitment Weekend will take place the weekend of February 3-4, 2024. As you prayerfully consider your level of financial support for the mission of the Cathedral of Saint Peter and possibly consider an increase, I invite you to complete the electronic Commitment Card today.

Your participation in Cathedral Mission Renewed will ensure that our mission can remain vibrant and strong as we seek to announce the Gospel of Jesus Christ and live our discipleship with joy. Please know of my daily prayers and gratitude for each of you.

Sincerely in Christ,
