St. Peter’s Cathedral and St. Peter’s Parish
First opening in 1910, St. Peter’s Cathedral with its unique and inspired architecture is one of the most important historic sites in the province. Its sixty-foot high twin towers and round sanctuary are just two of the building’s striking features. The Cathedral is home to paintings and frescos by the renowned artist Berthold Imhoff and to the 14 magnificent engraved Stations of the Cross, donated to the Cathedral by St. John’s Abbey of Collegeville, Minnesota. Newly restored paintings and stained glass make St. Peter’s Cathedral one of Muenster’s gems and a national and international attraction.
The Cathedral is home to St. Peter’s Parish, a Roman Catholic congregation of 160 families. The Parish extends a warm invitation to visitors and new residents to join in worship.
