After his ordination, he worked for a year in Ijebu-Ode diocese in Nigeria, after which he was appointed the Vocation Director for the Missionary Society of St Paul, between 2000 and 2006. He was later appointed to work in Mission Development Office, Houston Texas from 2006 to 2007. Just as he was settling down to his new mission posting, he was appointed the Bursar/Treasurer General of his Congregation, the Missionary Society of Paul from January 2008 to January 2014 before his assignment to work in the diocese of Savannah. In the diocese of Savannah, he was assigned to work at the Holy Trinity parish, Swainsboro and its mission Holy Family Metter from May 2014 to August 2017. Effective September 1, 2017, he was assigned to Our Divine Saviour Church Tifton and its mission church St Ann's Alapaha.
The CICM missionaries, who worked in his parish, ignited the fire and the zeal for the missionary priesthood in him. His journey to the Missionary Priesthood was encouraged and supported by his late Father who was a catechist and collaborator in the parish life and activities of his parish.
Among his hobbies, Fr Peter likes contemplating nature; he enjoys good music and loves playing ping pong (Table Tennis). Though not a good swimmer, he loves fishing.
