Welcome to Children's Ministry at Prince of Peace
Children's Religious Education (VPK-5th Grade)
We love young families at Prince of Peace! Our Children's Religious Education (a.k.a. Sunday School) meets on Sunday Mornings from 10:15-11:20 AM in the Rel. Ed. Building. This year, we also have a Homeschooling & Online Classes option for our families. The goal of our program is to help children and families become life-long disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe in the 3 F's: Fun, Friendly & Welcoming, and Faithful to authentic Catholic doctrine and tradition.

Every first Sunday of the month, our parish has a special liturgy for families and children to pray and worship together at the Sunday 9am Mass.
Features of the Family Mass include:
- Music appealing to the children sung by our Children's Choir
- Homilies meaningful to both children and adults
- Families serving as gift bearers and lectors
Children's Liturgy of the Word
(CLW is currently suspended until further notice due to the pandemic) On Sundays (except the 1st of the month), we invite all children (ages 3-9) to Children's Liturgy where they can hear the Biblical readings of the day followed by an age appropriate explanation that they can relate to. We also do fun activities, prayerful songs, and arts & crafts related to the message of the day for the children.
