Ascension & Assignments - May 21, 2023

Happy Ascension of the Lord! I usually think of mission when I think of the Ascension. Jesus ascends to Heaven, but gives us the command to carry on His mission of saving souls, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19–20)

Campus Renovations slowly upcoming - May 7, 2023

Come to him, a living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen and precious in the sight of God, and, like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. - 1 Peter 2:4-5

In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? - John 14:2

Fr. Andrew - What it means to be a Priest - April 30, 2023

It’s Holy Thursday. The Gospel is proclaimed, the rest of the church sits down...except for me. I approach the ambo, hands shaking, praying to the Holy Spirit that He would give me the words that He wants me to speak to His people. These people that I am preaching to, are my spiritual children, I am the one whom they call “Father.” I have been preaching to these people for 9 months... the majority of the time I have no issue preaching to them, but tonight it’s different...

Congratulations, First Communicants! - April 23, 2023

On Saturday, 4/29, POP will be celebrating First Communion. Congratulations to all our young people, and thank you so much to our parents and teachers and catechists who have prepared them. I happened to dig into some old keepsakes, and I found my 2nd Grade class photo and report card and share them here. Bonus points if you can figure out which one was me (my hair looked different back then). My teacher who prepared me for First Communion was Miss Debbie Rinke, who happens to teach one of our 2nd Grade classes at Prince of Peace!

Look at Jesus Alone - March 26, 2023

We enter the fifth week of Lent, the last normal week of Lent. The following week will be Holy Week. It is time to get serious! This Sunday the intensity goes up a notch as we cover statues in the church. This is a meaningful tradition. As we draw ever nearer to the Passion of Jesus, things are stripped away, just as Jesus will experience in His crucifixion. We take away anything that might distract us from looking where we might be uncomfortable looking—at Jesus on the cross.
