1946 I left my home town to study nursing at St. Lukes and Childrens Hospital At 8th and Thompson Sts coming from a staunchly Catholic Family I attended Mass At St Peters Church for the three years I attended the program. It brought back so many wonderful memories to see this beautiful church again. I did visit it once about twenty or so years ago with my sons Mario and Christopher.thank you for the memories of Blessed John Neuman.
