Description
Interior view of St. Peter Catholic Church, looking toward the altar. A very large stained glass depiction of Jesus graces the rear center wall, and a small wooden shelf with candle arrangements is directly below it. St. Peter Catholic Church is located at 338 N. Grand Ave., in the city of San Pedro.; The Apostle Peter, also known as St. Peter and Simon Peter, is often depicted in the Gospels as the chief spokesman of the Apostles, and the one to whom Jesus himself personally installed as Head of the Apostles and gave special authority to. It is written that on various occasions, Peter spoke in the name of the other Apostles. The Roman Catholic Church considers Simon Peter a saint and associates him with the foundation of the Church in Rome. In more modern times, St. Peter is depicted as the "keeper of the keys of the kingdom of heaven", and is often thought of as an elderly, bearded man who sits at the pearly gates that serve as heaven's main gate, and personally interviews prospective entrants into Heaven.
