SAINTS PETER and PAUL CATHOLIC CEMETERY
Hennepin County, Medina Township
Loretto, MN

 
The cemetery is located on 10 acres in the SW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 7, township 118, Range 23, on the Hamel Road, about 1/2 mile south of Loretto in Medina Township, Hennepin County Minnesota

A large crater separates the "old" and "new" sections. The old cemetery was surrounding the first long church built in 1867 by the early German and Dutch settlers of the area. In 1903, a new church was built in the town of Loretto, leaving the entire site as cemetery. The Western part became the "new" cemetery. During the years of 1896 to 1899, a certain "Kulture Kampf" occured and many records were either not kept or destroyed. The cemetery also was disrupted at a later date when during a clean-up, many old or broken stones were discarded. Attempts have been made to resorte or replace some of these.

The cemetery was recorded July 17, 1982, by the following members of the German Interest Group, a branch of the Minnesota Genealogical Society: Mary Bellingham, Ken Cutcomp, John Dollerschell, Winnie Fernstrom, Kermit Frye, Lidwina Stacy, Idee Stenzel and Russ Stenzel.
