Our many formation ministries provide opportunities for parishioners to gather for spiritual growth, social activities and service outreaches within a small group setting.
Adventure Ark Nursery/Playschool
The Adventure Ark offers children a place to play and grow in a loving Christian environment with weekday "mother's day out" playschool; nursery care during the Sunday morning Masses; as well as on Wednesday evenings and on Friday mornings for parents attending meetings and studies at Prince of Peace Catholic Church. For more information, click here. Sunday morning nursery care will resume in the fall.
This ministry prepares parents for the sacrament of Baptism of their child. A team of volunteers lead the class using provided instructional material. Classes are held the 2nd Sunday of each month at 9:45 am for parents to prepare for the sacrament of Baptism for their children. Contact is Megan Everett.
55 + Better
Throughout our adult lives, change is our constant companion. Some of these changes or milestones leave us with a newfound identity or outlook and, as a result, we begin searching for our new niche -- maybe seeking a group to join with others who are 55 plus. If this sounds like you, then we invite you to consider Prince of Peace’s new “55 and Better” ministry group. Contact them at [email protected]. Other upcoming events:
October 21 Wine Tasting Evening, 6-8pm, school youth room, $10 per person. RSVP here; pay via Venmo @popcatholichoover, or deliver a check to the church office.
Volunteers in this ministry educate those who wish to expand their commitment to care for the poor and vulnerable and to become advocates for social justice. They present study modules on topics such as the federal tax system, immigration, the environment and also sponsor a "Fair Trade Sale" in December. JustFaith graduates are involved in many service activities within the parish and throughout the community. Contact ministry lead Carol Binder for more information.
Classes are held quarterly to prepare engaged couples for the sacrament of Matrimony. Volunteers work with couples in a workshop environment to cover various topics and also assist with acquiring and scheduling guest speakers. Contact the church office for more information.
