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.

Septemberfest was a rousing success this year for Sts. Peter and Paul Parish and our Reading Community. The Lord blessed us with wonderful weather for the entire weekend. I know God answered the prayers of our shut-in parishioners whose job I assigned to pray for good weather. A festival this size is not possible without the hard work and dedication of hundreds of workers, volunteers, and patrons; thank you! Thank you to the many members of OLSH who helped us by working and running booths. Finally, a big thank you to our 2017 festival committee who worked for months to ensure a smooth and wonderful weekend: Cody & Sara Gertz, Kris & Desi Ralston, Rick & Michelle Ellison, Dean & Katie Freson, and Jim & Karie Gallo.
