ANNOUNCEMENTS

WEEKLY CHILDREN’S MASS

Celebrated in the Great Hall of the Community Center.

We invite families with young children to attend this special kid-friendly celebration of the Eucharist. The Mass will take no longer than 20-25 minutes. We will be singing child appropriate songs. Father Kamas will celebrate this Mass.

This Mass is also meant to afford an opportunity for children and parents of the parish to meet one another. So come on down!

You may enter the Community Center by the ramp at the east end of the rectory building. We will start the Mass promptly at 9:30 AM.


INTERCESSORY PRAYER GROUP

Every Sunday, the Our Lady of Peace Prayer Group leads an hour of intercessory prayer from 12:30pm until 1:30pm in the church. Everyone is invited to join them.

We ask all parishioners to submit the names of friends or relatives who need prayers for whatever reason. You may bring your intentions to the group personally on Sunday, or leave them with the parish receptionist who will pass them on to the group. Praying for each other is a powerful ministry.

Please consider joining the group for the prayer. But also remember to bring your intentions to them or to the rectory office.

You can also e-mail the intentions to: olpprayercommunity@gmail.com


CHARISMATIC PRAYER MEETING

The Our Lady of Peace Prayer group meets every Sunday from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM in the Wave Café of the High School, 173 E 75th Street. You may enter through the ramp of 76th Street at the East end of the rectory building. All are welcome!


SUNDAY FELLOWSHIP
