Facts

  • The St. Peter Cathedral is the mother church for the Diocese of Marquette, which serves all of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
  • The church was severely damaged in a 3 November 1935 fire. All that remained standing were the walls.
  • The church was reconstructed from 1936-1938, with Edward A. Schilling the supervising architect. At that time, the towers were extended to their current height.
  • Bishop Frederic Baraga (1797-1868), the first for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is entombed in the cathedral's crypt.
