Parish Home Page
We are a church of the Roman Catholic Faith. We have an intense interest in the Faith Formation of our parish families as reflected in our Religious Education and Confirmation, Adult Faith Formation, and Youth Ministry programs.
Located in Loretto, Minnesota, Saints Peter and Paul has the best of both worlds: We are in a rural setting, but with close access to the Twin Cities (downtown Minneapolis is about 35 minutes away).
Olson Memorial Hwy/Hwy 55: From Minneapolis, take Olson Memorial Hwy west. After it gets out of Minneapolis Olson Mem. Hwy. becomes State Hwy. 55. Follow Hwy 55 west for approximately twenty miles. Turn left at the stoplight at County Road 19. Go about one quarter mile into Loretto. Take a left at the brick Post Office building (on your left) and you’ll see the church ahead of you.
I 394: Take I394 west, which becomes Highway 12 west. Go about 20 miles to the stoplight at County Road 19, and turn right (north). Go about two miles on 19 until you arrive in Loretto, and turn right after the railroad tracks.You'll see the church straight ahead!
