Building Expansion

A Message From Father Rick


stoffel_frDear Parishioners of St. Peter Parish,

I continue to be amazed by the beauty of this church. I am blessed that I get to work in such a magnificent building. The building is majestic and the sanctuary is stunning. The building is extraordinary, and we need to preserve it in the name of all the faithful who built it and cared for it over the past century.

At the same time, we are presented with a wonderful, yet challenging, opportunity to enhance God’s ministries in our parish. Our proposed building plans are meant to address important parish needs. Please join me in financially supporting this building project, and in praying for its success. Together, we can ensure that our parish is a center of spiritual growth and renewal for generations to come.


God’s blessings to you!

Fr. Richard Stoffel


About the Building Expansion

Celebrating Tomorrow

We are committed to making our parish a center of spiritual growth and renewal… a faithful, trusting and loving community. We are a dynamic parish in a growing area. It is our responsibility to ensure that what makes us special today enhances and grows participation for tomorrow. It is also our responsibility to prepare for the future reality of fewer priests as anticipated by Vision 20/20, the Archdiocesan long-range plans. Today, we find ourselves overcrowded and running out of space to accommodate current and future programs as well as ministerial needs. As we grow, we cannot afford to put more stress on our current facilities that have run out of space.

We can make a significant addition to our church facility that enhances its’ appearance, insures our ability to manage future needs, and preserves the legacy that has been entrusted to us. We firmly believe that how we choose to enhance our church facility will increase appeal, attractiveness and interest in St. Peter Catholic School, St. Peter Religious Education, Youth, Young Adult, and many other ministry programs. Our goal is to ensure that we have the facilities needed to share the Good News of Christ for generations to come

RZ061616 - 1Why are we exploring a building program?

As members of St. Peter Catholic Church, we are committed to making our parish a center of spiritual growth and renewal. By providing Catholic education, formation and moral guidance, by celebrating the challenges of Christian living in Liturgy, Sacraments and Prayer, and by caring for the needs of the hurting, we form a faithful, trusting and loving community. We are a dynamic parish in a growing area. It is our responsibility to ensure that what makes us special today enhances and grows participation for generations to come. It is also our responsibility to prepare for the future reality of fewer priests, as anticipated by Vision 20/20. Today, we find ourselves overcrowded and running of out space to accommodate current and future programs as well as ministerial needs. As we grow, we cannot afford to put more stress on current facilities that have run out of space.

It is with this in mind that our parish leadership and staff have been meeting to develop preliminary plans for a building project. We can make a significant addition to our church facility that enhances its’ appearance, insures our ability to manage future needs, and preserves the legacy that has been entrusted to us for future generations. We firmly believe that how we choose to enhance our church facility will increase appeal, attractiveness and interest in St. Peter Catholic School, St. Peter Religious Education, Youth and Young Adult and many other ministry programs. Our goal is to ensure that we have the facilities needed to share the Good News of Christ for years to come.
