The Legacy Society
Our History, Our Vision
Our parish was established in New Kensington in 1904. The original building, St. Peter Church, was located along the railroad tracks on Constitution Boulevard. The land for the current site on Freeport Road was acquired in 1938.
Over 2,000 people were present at the groundbreaking for the new church in 1941. The story behind the building of our magnificent church is an epic legend. Our parish founders gave financial support and commitment of time and talents to build the new church which would be called Mount Saint Peter.
We wish to thank all the parishioners of Saint Peter’s and their friends … we have carved their names upon the walls of our heart, that we may have them always before our mind and continue to hold them in high esteem and benediction.
