Welcome to St. Peter Parish's Website!
Thank you for visiting our Parish website. We are a vibrant, active parish of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee with a longstanding history since 1856, when our church was established. We are currently undergoing renovations to physically expand and meet the needs of our growing parish community.
We pray our website proves to be a useful resource for you in learning about our parish community, finding events that are of interest to you, and a means to connect you to greater resources to further develop your faith life.
Please use the “Contact” page of this site to let us know if there is some way we can better reach out to you. We extend an invitation to you to join us any time to celebrate our faith. All are welcome!
Featured News & Events
We are in need of lectors, servers, distributors of communion, ushers, and greeters for the seven St. Peter Parish Christmas Masses!
Best Advent Ever is a free email program that will help you prepare for Christmas in a different way. Beginning the first Sunday of Advent (November 27) and continuing every day until December 26, you’ll receive short inspirational videos, practical tips, or free Christmas music that will help you slow down during the busy Christmas season to focus on what’s really important in life.
Our parish has been very blessed to have Ken and Richard Zautcke create slide shows documenting the renovation progress. Watch their latest renovations videos via YouTube. Also check out our bi-weekly renovation e-Newsletter "On This Rock" by signing up here.

Parishioners are invited to sign a scroll that will be inserted into the time capsule to be put into our new church before Christmas (since we can't be in physically, we can get in spiritually). You may stop after any Mass the first two weekends of December (December 3rd - 4th and 10th - 11th) at any of our locations to do so.
You may also stop by the parish office during regular hours through Thursday, December 15, as the time capsule will need to be filled and sealed for installation by then. We thank you in advance for participating!
St. Peter Youth Ministry is proudly taking orders for Eileen's scones and pies this Christmas. Orders are due by December 14, 2016 to the parish office. Pick up will take place December 17-18 after Mass. All money raised will benefit our youth. Cash or check payable to St. Peter Youth.
Scones are $1.00/each *If ordering scones, you must order a minimum of six scones.
Pies are $12.00/each
The first step in overcoming pornography usage is to admit that what you are doing is wrong, and that you want and need to change. This takes courage! Breaking free of pornography isn’t an event, but a process.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Realize you are not alone—millions of men and women struggle with pornography usage.
2. Let go of the shame—People who struggle with pornography often feel guilt and shame. Guilt can help us lead better lives, but shame makes us want to hide. Shame is not from God.
3. Receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation—When we receive God’s forgiveness, we take our addiction out of the darkness and into the light. Your priest can help you seek help for your addiction.
