Pastor Welcome

Welcome to St. Peter’s Parish in Muenster, Saskatchewan. I am Fr. Paul Paproski, OSB (Order of St. Benedict) and I  reside in the Benedictine monastery of St. Peter’s Abbey, Muenster. I began serving St. Peter’s Parish in July of 2015,  the place of my ordination in 2006.

St. Peter’s Parish is a Roman Catholic congregation of about 160 families. We extend an invitation to everyone to  come and celebrate Sunday Mass with us. All newcomers to the area are invited to join our faith community.

There is something old, spectacular and new about St. Peter’s Parish.

Constructed in 1910, the church has stood as a witness to the presence of God for more than a century. The house of worship was raised by pioneers who wanted a home where they could gather as a faith community and give glory to God. The pioneers built the parish in the heart of St. Peter’s Colony, a German-Catholic settlement. Pioneers of the colony came from the United States, Canada, and Europe. They were joined by Benedictines who provided the faithful with German-speaking priests.

Inside the church sanctuary are 80 life-sized frescos, completed in 1919 by Count Berthold Von Imhoff who wanted to bring a touch of Europe to the heart of Saskatchewan. The paintings are complemented by beautiful statuary and large Stations of the Cross. The art brings inspiration through beauty and picturesque illustrations of people and events from the Gospels.

After over 100 years of boldly weathering many storms, St. Peter’s Parish was renovated. The upgrading preserved the building’s original character and introduced new outdoor siding, a new hardwood floor and stained-glass windows. A parish picnic was held in 2010 to commemorate the centennial of the parish.

St. Peter’s Parish looks forward to another century of gathering as a faith community and giving glory to God.

 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
