Rev. Peter Schultz
Birth: September 8, 1866 in Poland
Death: February 9, 1906 in West Seneca, NY
Rev. Peter Schultz was rector of St. Barbara Church in West Seneca New York (Now Lackawanna) at the time of his death at age 40. He had been a resident of the United States for a brief five years, yet he endeared himself to a great number of people due to the different pastorates he held.
He was first stationed in Niagara Falls, then was transferred to Dunkirk, where he built St. Hedwig Church. For a time he also served in Our Lady of Czesochowa in North Tonawanda. St. Barbara was his last assignment.
Rev. Schultz studied for several years in France and was professor of philosophy at Lille, France, for ten years. He was a tireless laborer for the Church.
His funeral was held at Corpus Christi Church in Buffalo, New York and it was well attended.
