Father Peter Kieffer was ordained on June 24, 2017 and on June 25, he returned to his home parish, Blessed Sacrament Parish in La Crosse, to celebrate his first Mass as a priest.
He is the son of Tom and Maureen Kieffer, and as the youngest of four children, he grew up experiencing the closeness of family and faith. He attended Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary in Winona, the Pontifical North American College (NAC) in Rome and St. Francis de Sales in Milwaukee.
As an ordained priest of the Diocese of La Crosse, he will serve as the Associate Pastor of St. Matthew Parish and Holy Name Parish, and as Chaplain at Newman Middle School in Wausau.
