About The Basilica of Saint Peter: Established as St. Peter’s Catholic Church in 1821 to serve Irish immigrants building the Columbia Canal, the Basilica of Saint Peter is the second oldest Roman Catholic parish in the state of South Carolina. With a long history of architectural significance, the first church building for the parish was designed by famous South Carolina architect Robert Mills, and the current church building, completed in 1907, was designed by Frank Milburn, architect of the state capitol dome. In 2018, the Vatican granted Saint Peter’s the title of “Minor Basilica,” noting its historical significance, the frequency and quality of its liturgy, and the vibrancy of its parish life. Known as the “Mother Church of the Midlands,” Saint Peter’s continues to help the people of the Midlands encounter Christ through worship, formation, and the sacraments.
