COWICHE, Wash.--St. Peter's Church and Retreat Center has been holding retreats and other events for nearly one hundred years. But events at St. Peter's are way down. The building's expenses are $100,000 more than what it brings in. The diocese is stuck with a difficult decision.
"Hopefully we can find another use for it or another owner," said Reverend Robert Siler.
The building has structural issues, so tearing it down is a possibility. Rev. Siler said they may also simply mothball the center. The diocese has put together a committee to decide the fate of the building. They expect to make a decision by the end of the year.
