Parish History

Parish History

In 1997, the Pastoral Planning for the New Millennium Process started, where our three parishes started discussing combining ministries and services as a cluster. In July 2004, these three churches, Saint John the Evangelist, Saint James and Saint Ambrose became Winton-Culver Catholic Community, and came together under the new pastor Fr. Robert Schrader and parochial vicar Fr. Robert Werth.  In 2007 the parishioners of the three parishes in the cluster decided it was time to combine into a single canonical parish. In a vote by the parishioners, the name Peace of Christ Parish was the clear favorite for the name of this new parish.
