Sts Peter & Paul Catholic Church


category : Historic Churches
Sts Peter & Paul Catholic Church Built in 1928 for a mere $10,000, Sts. Peter & Paul Parish is home to a vibrant Christian community and contains many beautiful ecclesiastical artifacts. Although not open to the public as a museum, visitors to the site may view the striking stained glass windows and the beautifully carved mahogany doors, which contain symbols of Sts Peter and Paul, such as carvings of the keys given to St. Peter by Christ and an upside down cross. It's said that St. Peter requested to be crucified in this manner because he did not consider himself worthy to die in the same manner as Christ.

The exterior of the building is an interesting mix of architectural styles, with Corinthian columns on the front and Tudor shaped doors on the side of the building. Once inside, worshippers will find three ornate wood altars that were shipped from Germany, along with beautiful stained glass from Europe, carved by Sarasota, Florida artist Ron Estep, and statues cast from plaster molds.
