Parish History


"Saints Peter and Paul Parish was established in 1882 for the people of the Niagara section of the city. In 1973 the beautiful Spanish baroque church, designed by Ralph Adams Cram, was destroyed by fire and a new church was created on the first floor of the school. In 1998 when the Franciscan Conventual Friars withdrew from Holy Cross Parish, founded in 1917 for Polish parishioners, Holy Cross Church became the parish church for the two merged communities."
