St. Peter's Catholic Church Renovations Complete

Updated:

 A local church's dream of a renovation come true.

Interior renovations of  the St.. Peter's catholic church are complete. The 1.2 million dollar project includes a new coat of paint around the gothic arches of the church, which required working on scaffolding, new pews and carpeting.

The new church is also equipped with a state of the art sound system.

Father J. Friedel says the project itself is special because each renovation is a kind of preservation effort.

"we just wanted to enhance it and pass it on as the legacy for the next 40 years for those who are going to come after us. We inherited something beautiful from the generations that came before us. So when they had the plans of building this beautiful structure back in 1905, we inherited that. We just wanted to make sure it was all glued back together and enhanced so that we're ready for the next 40 years of worship in this space." Friedel says.

The church invites anyone to come take a look at the interior of the chapel. They also plan to have an open house for the chapel in the future.
