All Are Welcome

Service Ministries

As Christian stewards, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus on earth.  The Prince of Peace service pillar ministries reach out to people, both within the parish and in the wider community, and serve them through these many ministries:  

Breast Cancer Survivors

This ministry is for anyone who has been diagnosed with and/or survived breast cancer. They welcome and encourage long-term survivors as well as those who have recently been diagnosed and may be undergoing treatment to join the group. The ministry meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm.  The ministry's goal is to provide support, encouragement, information and to pray for one other.  Contact Betty Shivers

This ministry meets every Tuesday from 1 pm to 3 pm to creates handmade prayer shawls, lap blankets, baby items, scarves, and hats that are donated to parishioners and community organizations.  They also pray for ill parishioners.   Contact Pam Ozeki.
