St. Peter

St. Peter

Feast Day: June 29
Patron of: Manual laborers (bakers, fishermen, locksmiths, shipbuilders, etc), relief from illnesses such as fever and foot problems

St. Peter is venerated as the leader of the apostles and the very first Pope. He rose from humble beginnings as a fisherman on Lake Genesareth to become Christ’s right-hand man. St. Peter helped cement the early Church as a transformational force for good, leading it through persecution and extending it beyond Jewish territories. His story of dogged determination and simple, manly faith shows that God can do anything through willing instruments.

Ask for help from St. Peter if you need humility, or if you’re facing tremendous fear or opportunities you don’t think you can handle.
