St. Peter's Parish is located in southeast Lincoln, just south of 45th Street and Old Cheney Road.

Bishop Glennon P. Flavin established our parish in 1990 and appointed Father Robert Vasa as pastor. A house on Duxhall Drive was purchased to serve as rectory, chapel, meeting room and office. The first baptism and parish Mass were celebrated in August of 1990 in the rectory.

In September of 1990, Edgewood III Theaters became the new site for Sunday Mass. The parish enrollment was a little over 300 households. We lovingly called our location St Edgewood. In November of that year the ground breaking ceremony for the school was held and a Knights of Columbus Council was formed.

In September of 1991, the school opened its doors and the new gymnasium became the site for Mass that December. The church was dedicated in September of 1995. In 1996, Father Michael Christensen was installed as the second pastor of St Peter's Parish. The parish hall has since been dedicated in honor of Bishop Robert Vasa following his consecration in January of 2000.

Fr. Charles Townsend became the third pastor of the parish on June 13, 2016.

Our parish enrollment as of February 2016 is 1370 households.
