Overview of our Locations

St. Joseph’s history dates back to 1903. This warm and intimate Church has the perfect niche setting for Daily Mass, Prayer Services, and Saturday Night Mass. With very low upkeep costs that are covered by the childcare center income and rich connections to the community, this Church is an important part of our Parish Life.

The original Church of Saint Peter’s was built just after the Civil War in 1865, the site of which today is marked by the tombstones of the early pioneers. The present Church of Saint Peter was completed in 1913. In 2013, the addition of St. Martha’s Hall and a large gathering space, made the Sanctuary fully handicap accessible. The sound system has also been upgraded to include hearing assistance and a full range of musical capabilities. Each week, our Sunday Masses and School Mass take place here.

St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School stands for excellence. Our staff works diligently to develop in students the skills and knowledge that are the basis of a strong Catholic education and academic program. We offer enriching experiences and opportunities to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically in a caring environment, providing a foundation our students can stand upon for the rest their lives.

We encourage you to consider joining our community of staff and parents who are dedicated to supporting a Christian environment that embraces faith, discipline and respect and forms the basis for all learning. Visit the School Website.


Families appreciate our Christian values and home-like environment. We offer the highest quality childcare to families in and around the Delano area, where children find laughter, warmth, and respect. Our classroom structure provides an intimate setting that feels like family with a nurturing and loving atmosphere.

Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, our experienced, caring, and committed teachers design developmentally appropriate curriculum to foster children’s self confidence, creativity, and social skills. We provide the best, safest and most stimulating learning environment possible for children so that parents may have complete peace of mind when they leave their children in our care.

Visit our New Adoration Chapel from Tuesday 9:15am through Thursday 8:00am. The Adoration Chapel is located in the back of the Parish Office building, off the rear parking lot, door #3.

If you are ever at a place in your life where you really need someone, try coming to Eucharistic Adoration. This is quiet time, generally an hour, spent in prayer before Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament. You will deepen your personal relationship with Jesus, feeling His love and compassion. As St. John Vianney would say, “I just look at Him, and He looks back at me”. If you would like to sign up for a regular hour each week or would just like the key code to drop by whenever you want, please contact the Parish Office.
