FQC Attends Dedication Ceremony for St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church
FQC recently participated in the dedication ceremony for the new church facility at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Itasca. The long-awaited event was held on Sunday, June 25, 2017 at a Mass with Bishop R. Daniel Conlon presiding over the rite and ceremony.
The original structure was no longer sufficient for the needs of the community so the parish embarked on a campaign titled “The Key to Our New Home” in order to fulfill the vision of a church that would fit the worship and gathering needs of present and future parishioners.
