Peter worked in Cartagena, a port in Columbia, for the Society of Jesus, where he was ordained. Serving during the slave trade, Peter spent his time caring for African slaves who often faced terrible conditions both on and off the slave ships. He served for 40 years and baptized an estimated 300,000 slaves, becoming known as the Apostle of Cartagena. After Peters death, Pope Leo XIII later declared Claver the Patron of missionary work among all African people.
