Prince of Peace students making their sacraments in the next School Year (2022-2023)

Elementary Religious Formation children in their first year of religious education, receive the Saint Mary’s Press Catholic Children’s Bible and the instruction to initiate and support their lifelong relationship with God through His Word in Sacred Scripture.  Prince of Peace works closely with you as you empower your child to embark on a lifelong journey of drawing closer to God in His Word.
Prince of Peace School 1st-Graders receive their religious instruction at Prince of Peace School with the full support and modeling of the faith from their parents at home.

Prince of Peace respects the institutions of family and parish. Religious education, including sacramental preparation, occurs primarily within one's family, under the umbrella of one's home parish.
Children in the 7th-12th Grade desiring to make their sacraments should contact the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry.
Anyone older than high school-age attends RCIA and should contact the Coordinator of Adult Faith Formation.
