Our Services

What are services like?
We offer quiet Masses, Masses where hymns are sung, Solemn High Masses which are completely sung all in the Ordinary Form in English. We also have Mass in the Extraordinary Form in Latin. Prince of Peace also has a Perpetual Adoration Chapel where people can come to Christ any time of the day or night.

What is the community like?
We are a parish of over 2000 families and growing, and it is exciting to be part of a community of Christian witnesses where so much good is going on. we believe in being Christians by conviction, not just by convention. In fact, we are an intentional community of Christian disciples. Our time belongs to God. The most important thing we do each week is worship God at Holy Mass every Sunday and Holy Day with our families, friends and fellow parishioners. We find our path to God through our daily work and life in our homes, sanctifying the day and giving the LORD thanks with our lives.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome members of the parish who are not in full communion with the Catholic Church or who for some reason are not able to regularly receive Holy Communion for some reason. Don’t let not being in full communion with the Church keep you away from being a part of our community!
