Last class graduates from St. Peter Cathedral School

Local News

It was a bitter sweet day at St. Peter Cathedral School on Monday.

The downtown school, located at 160 W. 11 St.,  held graduating exercises for its final eighth-grade class. 

“I always enjoyed my times here,” said Lucy Wiesner, a St. Peter’s grad. “I think it’s just the way the trends are going through the town.”

The school will close for good on Thursday as part of a reorganization of parish schools within the Catholic Diocese of Erie.

“Without the school, it’s going to take away a lot of the parishioners,” said Meredith Wiesner, a graduate of St. Peter’s.

“It’s time to look forward and move on and celebrate Catholic education in its new form in Erie,” St. Peter’s Principal Mary Gibson said.
