We have seen Our Lady of Peace grow by welcoming new members from many cultures and involving more and more parishioners in parish life.  OLP affords opportunities to get involved in liturgical, spiritual, educational, social and outreach ministries.

This is an invitation to inform and yes, even involve you in one or more of the many opportunities here at Our Lady of Peace.

The ongoing commitment to these ministries is essential for the authentic Christian life of the parish.  A diversity of ministries and the fruit of faithful witness to Christ evident at OLP.  Hopefully, there is some activity in the parish that you are interested in yourself.

Our Catholic mission is to Seek Unity, Celebrate Diversity by Praying, Caring and Sharing.  We believe God has given us this bold mission and we enthusiastically embrace it.  We seek to engage our ministry in a way that builds bridges between people from a wide variety of cultures.  There is a strong desire to endorse activities that will create a stronger sense of unity in community.

As Catholics, we know that our worship and service of God calls for more than one hour on Sundays.  The many activities we can offer for involvement in parish life can be wonderful opportunities for putting your faith into action.

In October we will celebrate 100 years as a Catholic Parish.  Plan on being part of that celebration of Catholic Unity, a blend of cultures to create the Apostolic Flavor of the Universal Catholic Faith known in the Church for over 2000 years.

It is a grace beyond words to be called your "Pastor".  I am so grateful for all of you who choose to make Our Lady of Peace your parish home.
