“And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19)

St. Peter the Apostle Church is located in the south-west corner of the Diocese of Lafayette. We are a Catholic community centered upon Our Lord Jesus Christ with the mission of helping the people of Gueydan to come to know, love, and serve Him. Jesus is the center of our lives, so we humbly respond to Him with love, worship and adoration. In the gift of the Holy Eucharist we recognize the real and abiding presence of Our Lord, who gives us His Father’s love and mercy.

If you live in our area or if you have been away from the Sacraments, or if you are just curious about the Catholic faith, you are always welcome at St. Peter’s. We are very blessed to have a staff and volunteers dedicated to proclaiming the truth about God and the world.

We offer a variety of opportunities to discover or deepen your relationship with God and to grow in knowledge of Him and His Church. If you have children, we invite you to consider sending them to St. Peter School, where they will encounter God in the midst of their studies and grow in their knowledge and love for Our Lord Jesus Christ. We also provide Catechesis for children who attend public schools or receive a home school education.

Please browse our Website to find information concerning our School, the Sacraments, Parish Organizations, and ways to participate in the Ministries of the Sacred Liturgy. We also provide information for our parishioners with Schedules and information on Upcoming Events.
