As Jesus prepared to turn over to his apostles and disciples a share in the mission entrusted to him by his Father, he empowered and commissioned them to teach in his name. As baptized Catholics we are all called to pass on our Catholic faith to the younger generation.
Today each of us is asked to stand in the midst of our family, our parish and our community, aware of our faith, proud of it and part of the effort to share this wonderful gift. One way of sharing our Catholic faith is to support our Catholic Schools. Please call 320-597-2565 for more information about Sts. Peter & Paul School’s Scholarship Fund, which assists families who have difficulty paying tuition.
In 1988, the Sts. Peter & Paul Endowment Fund was established to ensure that Catholic education would be available for the children of Sts. Peter & Paul Parish. It is funded by designated voluntary contributions and from sources other than regular parish income. Only interest income from the Endowment Fund is used.
Anyone may contribute directly to Sts. Peter & Paul Endowment Fund or list the fund in your will. Any amount is appreciated as it helps to continue the parish’s tradition of Catholic education.
Income is distributed to the following priorities:
To parents of students (K-5) in Sts. Peter & Paul School on a tuition grants basis
To the general fund of Sts. Peter & Paul School
To specific school needs
As of May 30, 2014, the value of the Sts. Peter & Paul Endowment fund is $586,858.11
For more information or ways you can contribute to the fund, please call 320-597-2565

Our fundraisers help us to keep our tuition cost low and provide an opportunity for family and community members to work and celebrate together.
Each fall, students, parents and staff members gather on a Saturday in September to complete fall tasks for the community. Teams of children and adults wash windows, dig potatoes, paint posts, rake leaves, etc. Students seek pledges for their two-hours of community service. The morning ends with a meal for workers and work providers.
This event is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving and consists of delicious food, music, Silent Auction, Pie Raffle and more! It is a great evening for friends and family to gather and support our Catholic School.
The Holiday Extravaganza is held the first Sunday of December from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM. Parents of the school serve a delicious Ham & Cheese Omelet Breakfast. There is also a Cookie/Candy Walk and Silent Auction. It is a wonderful opportunity to get your Christmas baked goods while enjoying a delicious meal.
The annual Sts. Peter & Paul School Golf Fundraiser is held in June. The money earned is used for our technology fund. In the past we have purchased Chrome Books, computers, iPads, Smart Boards and Student Response Systems with the funds raised.
