 Welcome to our Parish
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting with us today! Founded in 1891, St. Peter Catholic Church has a vibrant history full of faith and discipleship, and today we strive to continue the tradition of both personal and Church growth. By blending spiritual direction and teaching with the Liturgy, worship, and fellowship, we work continually to create a true Parish Family.

If you are here on vacation or visiting family, let us be your "home away from home". If you are joining us in search of a new parish, please prayerfully consider making St. Peter your Church home. And if you are here exploring the Catholic faith, we will be honored if you choose us to guide you on your spiritual journey.

If you are in need of spiritual direction or assistance of any kind, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office. We pray that the ministries we provide will be a blessing in your life.
