St. Peter Catholic Church in Douglas, MI Breaks Ground

Church members and project partners gathered Sunday, October 4th, to break ground on a major addition and renovation project at St. Peter Catholic Church, in Douglas, MI. Funded by a capital campaign called "Building a Legacy on The Rock," St. Peter Catholic Church’s new additions and renovations are scheduled to be complete by Easter of 2021. O‑A‑K and Progressive AE are providing construction management and architectural services, respectively, on this project.

The project will be completed in one phase to ensure a fast track to completion. A new centrally-located youth space shows the church’s dedication to encouraging growth in the Catholic faith among the younger generation. The renovations will bring the church’s existing sanctuary up to code by providing new mechanical equipment and fire suppression, as well as ADA access. The design will also provide more gathering space for Sunday school and children's mass.

On the exterior, a new entrance will promote a sense that all are welcome. New outdoor landscaping will also allow for a move functional outdoor space to pray and enjoy to beautiful view of Kalamazoo Lake. This space will include the large statue of the patron Saint Peter.

This is a wonderful moment for the people of St. Peter’s parish. We look forward to our renewed and expanded facilities, and to a renewal of our faith community as well. We are grateful for everyone working so hard and dedicated, in offices and in the ground to help us to fulfill such renewal.

Father Garzon
Priest, St. Peter Catholic Church
