Just a few questions


#1

Hey guys!
I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can about my faith recently and the topic I wanted to tackle today was Peter, the first pope.

Do we know anything about what his tasks were as the first pope besides spreading christianity and starting new churches?

How many people were under the faith by the time he died?

And lastly, did he celebrate any form of mass this early on?


#2

Yes, as can be inferred form Acts chapter 2. The exact form of it would not be known.
