Blessing of Pets

Dear Friends:

In observance of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4th) we will have a Blessing of Pets on Sunday, October 2 at 1:00 pm.

Bring your “best friend” to the Queen of Peace Grotto in front of our Church where we will give thanks to God for the beauty of His creation and ask His blessing upon these animals.

Fr. Jonathan Sawicki, Pastor

Mary’s Helpers Food Pantry

Mary’s Helpers was established in 2008 under the supervision of Sister Sue Ann Steves.  Over the years the Food Pantry has established relationships with PA State Medical Center,  and other charitable organizations. 

The Food Pantry, Mary’s Helpers, purchases their food supplies from the Central PA Food Bank and receives donations from Prince of Peace Parishioners,  Matthew-25 Grants via the Diocese of Harrisburg and the United Way.  PA State Medical Center and the Central PA Food Bank hold classes to assist the needy in the area with dietary needs, blood pressure screenings and “Flu” shots. We rely on our dedicated volunteers to give assistance to the Food Pantry and to our Chairpersons.  Our volunteers are dedicated to the Food Pantry which Sr. Sue Ann Steves established and will continue to be of service to our local community.
