August 1st used to be the Feast of Saint Peter's Chains, but it looks like this feast was suppressed at some point after 1955.  Anyone know why? 
Huh?   Hmm... in my 1956 missal the feast of St. Peter's Chains is still listed as the feast of the day and I believe the daily mass offered in my parish today was that of St. Peter's Chains.  I'm not sure if the new 1962 missal changed this as my parish only uses the missal promugated in 1955.

Don't know why but according to my FSSP ordo today is  Feria with commemoration of the Maccabees, but one could instead celebrate Peter in Chains (in which case you would commemorate St. Paul under one conclusion and then the Maccabees).
My 1961 missal does not mention the feast at all...

John XXIII abolished the Feast.

Probably too Catholic.

The 1960 reforms removed several feasts of saints who were celebrated more than once - the Chair of St. Peter in Rome (Jan. 18, leaving the Chair of St. Peter in Antioch, renamed the Chair of St. Peter, Feb. 22), the Seven Sorrows of the BVM (Friday in the I Week of Passiontide, leaving the feast on Sep. 15), the Invention of the Holy Cross (May 3, leaving the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on Sep. 14), St. John at the Latin Gate (May 6, leaving his feast on Dec. 27), the Apparition of St. Michael (May 8, leaving Sep. 29), St. Peter in Chains (Aug. 1, leaving Jun. 29), and the Invention of St. Stephen (Aug. 3, leaving his feast on Dec. 26).
Our Cathedral is St. Peter in Chains and we never renamed it. I think it's like Paul says. There are other feasts honoring St. Peter on Feb. 22 and June 29.

Actually, once a chapel, church, or cathedral is consecrated to a saint I don't think it's possible to rename it.
