Peter and Paul Catholic School, 198 W Bridge St., New Braunfels BACKGROUND Subject: Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School, 198 W Bridge St., New Braunfels Background: A top item on German immigrants' agenda was to establish churches and schools. In New Braunfels, Catholics received land off Zink Street from the Adelsverein and, in 1847, built a log chapel, writes Oscar Haas in "History of New Braunfels and Comal County, Texas, 1844-1946 " In 1849, the "Black Walnut Church" was built and, later, encased by the present Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Church, 286 N. Castell Ave The old log chapel, writes Haas, quoting Rev Joseph Wahlen of Honey Creek, "served as the P'ioto sut,)rnittf‘tj By 1900 this building had become the Sts Peter and Paul Catholic School school" The early years of that first school are sketchy. Haas writes that Franciscan Fathers, pastors for a while, conducted a school Later, Benedictine Fathers and lay brothers held classes. But those early efforts "were sporadic/' said Everett Fey, local historian and "Archives" columnist for SPPCC weekly bulletin. Not until October 1871, when two Sisters of Divine Providence arrived from Castroville, was a regular school established From that point on, said Fey, the school "never shut its doors." By 1900, a two-story brick building with a porch replaced the old log cabin. That school, next to the church, later was torn down The site is now the Parish Center in October 2011, SPP Catholic School marked its 140th anniversary. Today's classes are held in a modern building near the church, but the Divine Providence sisters have gone, replaced by lay teachers. — Marilyn Kuehler Have you seen a piece of “Hidden History' m New Braunteis you would like to know more about'?
