ST. PETER’S SCHOOL PARTICIPATES IN THE ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
St. Peter’s Church was founded in 1821 as an outreach to Irish immigrants who had come to Columbia to work on the Columbia Canal. At the time, the canal was built to ferry river traffic around the shoals where the Broad and Saluda Rivers come together to form the Congaree. In those days, the rivers were “the interstates” of our growing nation, roads of water that allowed raw materials and goods to flow down river to ports. We are proud of our Irish roots and we celebrate the growth of that small Irish community into today’s international community, with students coming from around the corner and around the world.
