Join Our Parish

Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church has a very rich history that dates back to the year 1850, when Archbishop John Baptist Purcell founded a new parish. Our desire as a parish is to continue to minister to the local community and to shine as a welcoming beacon for all.

Happy News!

With the end of the Covid mask mandate on June 2, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr has just sent word that the obligation of Sunday worship will be reinstated the weekend of June 5/6. Follow this link to the letter below. I can’t wait to see everyone together again!

Return of Processions

Beginning on May 3, 2021, the entrance, Eucharistic, and recessional processions during the Mass will be reinstated at all liturgies except the Friday Noon Mass which will continue with high-risk protocols.

What does this mean?

  1. Servers will be returning to ministry for each Sunday liturgy.
  2. For the reception of the Eucharist, we will process forward. Please try to maintain the required 6 feet social distance requirement. Eucharistic ministers will be spaced appropriately. Masks must be worn. Please receive the Eucharist in the palm of your non-dominant hand, pick it up with your fingers, then pull mask up or down with the opposite hand, then consume.
  3. Those who are unable to process forward for communion are asked to sit close to the front, in the front pew, or in the cross section. A minister will come to you.

Note: Friday Noon Mass will maintain all safety standards currently in place.
