This House We Are Building: An Illustrated Guide to St. Peter Catholic Church
In this new full-color hardcover book, Fr. Damien Cook takes you on a guided tour of St. Peter's - one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in the Archdiocese of Omaha. Fr. Cook focuses in particular on the building's recent renovations - and what they mean within the storied tradition of Catholic art and architecture.
A limited number of these fully illustrated, 94-page books are currently available in the parish office. And if you know someone who used to be a parishioner or student at St. Peter's, this will make a one-of-a-kind gift. The introductory price is $55 per book.
