A Prayer for Vocations

Loving and Generous Father, it is You who call us by name and ask us to follow You.  Help us to grow in the love and service of our Church and give us the grace and courage of Your Holy Spirit to shape its future.  Grant us faith-filled leaders who will embrace Christ’s mission of love and justice.   Bless the Church of Harrisburg by raising up dedicated and generous servants from our parishes, schools, families, and friends who will serve Your people as priests, deacons, and consecrated women and men.  Inspire us to know You better and open our hearts to hear Your call.  We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

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, Costco 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, Costco, 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. Currently the Food Pantry has been of service to 3,727 individuals during the 2018 fiscal year.  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.
