1992 Parish Festival re-instituted.
After the Ox Roast festival begun in 1976 was dropped in 1986, the parish decided to establish a Chicken Barbecue festival on the second Sunday of each July. This very successful event has helped to bring our parish together, and raise funds for many parish and pastoral improvements.
Parish festivals and feather parties have been a long held tradition at Peru.
1994 Fr. Nelson Beaver becomes Pastor.
Fr. Beaver ministered to our parish until 2004. He was appreciated as a humble and holy man with a unique sense of humor.
