Saints' Day of Sant Pere

June 29th

June 29th is the Saints Day of Sant Pere, who is known as Saint Peter in English, and is an important festival day in Catalonia and the rest of the Catalan countries with Festa Majors in many towns.

According to the New Testament Sant Pere was born Simó Pere, in English Simon Peter, was born in Bethsaida in Galilee some time before the birth of Christ.

He was one of Jesus of Nazareth's Twelve Disciples and following the crucifiction became the first leader of the Christians.

According to Catholic teaching, Jesus promised Peter in the "Rock of My Church" dialogue in Matthew 16:18 a special position in the Church. 

For this reason, he is traditionally counted as the first Bishop of Rome‍—‌or pope‍—‌and also by Eastern Christian tradition as the first Patriarch of Antioch.
