History of Ss. Peter & Paul Church Elrosa

Bishop Zardetti granted the establishment of the parish in 1889, but was located in the former village of Lake George, Minnesota. The first frame church was built there in 1891 and dedicated in 1892. Priests from Spring Hill and then Belgrade serviced the parish once a month during the early years.

Once the railroad arrived, coming through Elrosa and bypassing Lake George, the community of Sts. Peter and Paul decided to move everything to Elrosa. The present church building was a work in progress beginning in 1917 with the basement, and then finished and dedicated by Bishop Busch in 1926. The current rectory was completed at the same time, both under the direction of Father John Fuss.

In 1952, the parish built the six-room parochial school which was staffed by the Benedictine Sisters of St. Joseph. Since closing in 1972, the school building has been used as a catechetical center.

For more detailed history of Sts. Peter and Paul parish, please refer to the book “The Spirit in Central Minnesota” by Vincent A. Yzermans.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer "I would rather train twenty men to pray, than a thousand to preach; A minister's highest mission ought to be to teach his people to pray."
