St. Peter's in Greenville Breaks Ground for New Center
Construction will soon begin for a new Spiritual Life Center on the campus of St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Greenville. Ground was broken for the new 25,000 square feet facility Friday, March 27. The new structure will incorporate a portion of the existing Parish Hall and feature a large meeting area sufficient to seat approximately 400 for large gatherings and a fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen.
The first floor will provide a nursery, a music room and Peter’s Way for religious articles and books. In addition, the St. Vincent DePaul Society which provides food, clothing and other assistance to the needy of Pitt County will now be able to have sufficient space for better serving those in need. The second floor will have large and small meeting rooms, particularly for the youth of the parish and evangelization and many other parish organizations. The building will also allow for offices and storage space.
Fr. Justin Kerber, CP, Pastor of St. Peter, said he was overwhelmed and grateful by the response and commitment of the parishioners in meeting the goal of the $2.3 million capital campaign.
The project is expected to be completed by December 27, 2009.
