Welcome to the Roman Catholic parish of St Peter – Our Lady of the Rosary, with more than a 230-year history in Lower Manhattan. We celebrate, in Word and Sacrament, God's presence among us. Through faith and Baptism, we share in Christ’s unique, priestly vocation. By adhering unfailingly to the truths given to the saints, we share His prophetic office and, by serving the needs of others, we share in Christ’s royal office. Everyone is welcome here-period!. This is God’s house and we are his family.
We are the Roman Catholic parish of St. Peter’s – Our Lady of the Rosary, encompassing
St. Peter’s Church, Our Lady of the Rosary (the Seton Shrine) and St. Joseph’s Chapel
(The Catholic Memorial at Ground Zero).
We are the first Catholic parish in New York State (est. 1785) but our legacy in Lower Manhattan pre-dates the American Revolution. The parish has served as a safe haven both in the past for needy immigrants and more recently for victims and rescue personnel in the wake of 9/11, without regard to religion. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and the Venerable Pierre Toussaint, who performed many works of charity in this parish, inspire us to a tradition of service to the residents, the many people who work in the area, and the multitude of visitors who come from around the world. We strive to serve our neighborhood in that spirit, with welcome and compassion for all because we are all children of God.
