Peter is considered the founder of the Catholic Church headquartered in Rome (although he grew up in Israel).

But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

1 Peter 3:15-16
