Welcome to our home on the internet. St. Peter Roman Catholic Parish is located near Mary Esther, Florida along the beautiful emerald green waters and sugar-white sand beaches of the panhandle of Northwest Florida.
Whether you are a long time parishioner, newly registered, been away from the Church for a while, or a visitor to the Emerald Coast, I am sure you will find this website full of useful information.
I extend you a warm welcome to St. Peter Parish should you ever find yourself in this beautiful part of Florida. We are eager to welcome you and your family to our community of faith.
