Our vision that our minitries look to follow
"Through SS. Peter & Paul Parish's humble beginnings in 1844, our family in faith continues to preserve and honor the past, value the present and shape young disciples for a vibrant fure for our community. We strive to evangelize and strengthen the universal Body of Christ through worship, prayer and service so that one day, we will be joined together forever in God's Heavenly Kingdom."
