Parish History

December 1, 1866 one acre of ground was purchased for $100.00 by a group of Catholic families and became the holy ground on which a church was erected two years later. For 30 years the church remained a mission of St. Joseph. The first resident pastor came in 1898 after a Rectory was built and the church enlarged. Today, the church is still located on the original beautiful rural setting. In 2006, Fr. David Misbrener was appointed to serve the parish. He oversaw the completion of the new church that was begun by Fr. Kevin Fete. The parish continues to grow as the population of the Rootstown and Brimfield area continues to expand and St. Peter’s continues to welcome new families into the parish.
