     St. Peter Church (Jefferson City MO) is located in Jefferson City, Cole County, Missouri. A Catholic denomination church.
The first visit of a Catholic priest to Jefferson City was in 1831. There is no record of the number of families of that belief living in the county at that time, but from that year the visits of the itinerant missionary priests were regular, with an ever-increasing frequency. The records kept in the diocesan chancery of St. Louis reckon Jefferson City the 59th parish in the diocese and state that in 1831 the first holy mass was celebrated by Rev. Phoenix L. Verreydt, a native of Belgium and a member of the Society of Jesus, at that time a resident at the Indian mission of Portage des Sioux, St. Charles, Missouri.

The same records state that Jefferson City was again visited by the Jesuits in 1836, and it is presumable that these zealous missionaries did not neglect the Catholics of Cole County in the intervening period. In 1838 Father Helias came to New Westphalia (now in Osage County, then part of Gasconade) as resident missionary priest, and from there made regular monthly tours throughout the adjacent counties; his visits including twenty-five missions, among them Taos and Jefferson City. There being no church at that time in Jefferson City, the meeting was in a private house. He placed the mission under the patronage of St. Ignatius, who continued to be venerated by the mission as their patron saint until the year 1846, when the first church was built and dedicated under the title of St. Peters. In 1842 Father Helias transferred his residence, by order of his superior, to Taos, from which place he continued to attend the flock at Jefferson City until the appointment of a resident pastor in 1846.

First Catholic Church building in Jefferson City

In 1845 the Catholics of Jefferson City were sufficiently numerous to undertake the erection of a building. There being no resident priest here, the following named laymen: J. W. Wolters, G. H. Dulle, Anton Maus, M. Wallendorf, F. Roer, B. Eveler, G. Pirmer, P. Meyers, C. and F. Kolkmeyer, J. H. Gels, G. H. Kroeger, J. H. Kroeger, J. H. Heitker, P. Reisdorff, B. Replo, H. B. Rackers, Herman Tellman and Patrick Buckley, undertook the then Herculean task. The result of their united efforts produced the first building shown above.

Soon after the erection of the church, Messrs. J. B. Wolters and B. Eveler were sent to St. Louis to request the Right Rev. P. R. Kendrick to grant them a resident spiritual advisor. Rev. James S. Murphy was chosen and assumed the duties of resident pastor in July 1846. The pioneer Catholics and pastors of Jefferson City Catholic Church were strangers to the many comforts now found in all well organized parishes. Father Murphy remained in charge until December 1848.

The next pastor was Rev. Joseph Mejster, who assumed the duties of pastor of St. Peters in 1849, continuing until 1853. The third pastor was Rev. Joseph Blaarer, who ministered to the spiritual needs until May 1854 when he was succeeded by Rev. William Walsh, who remained in charge until January 1863. During his administration the second church was built, the old church being used as a school house.

Second Catholic Church building in Jefferson City

The next pastor, Rev. Jacob Mueller, served from January 1863 until March 1875 and was succeeded by Rev. Henry Muers who died August 24, 1876. He was succeeded by Father Otto Joseph Stanislaus Hoog (see sketch) who was largely instrumental in building this church into one of the leading church organizations of the state.

Third Catholic Church building in Jefferson City

The third church building was erected under his administration and the congregation numbered more than 500 with an attendance of 403 at St. Peter’s parochial school in 1900.1
St. Peters Catholic Church was founded in 1846, nine years after the first services were held there by missionary fathers from Boonville. The priests of St. Peter's from 1846, were Revs. James Murphy, Joseph Meister, Joseph Blaar, William Walsh, Jacob Miller, Henry Meurs, and Rev. O. J. S. Hoog succeeding in September, 1876. The assistant priests during these years were Revs. H. Vandersanden, H. Schrage, F. Kueper, J. F. Diel, P. Trumm, F. Holweck, A. Diepenbrock, B. H. Kuhl, B. Stemker, J. Carroll, S. Sennerich, J. Schram, F. H. Schulte, and J. Klinger.2,3
