Prince of Peace Catholic Parish is focused on providing THE WAY, an intentional discipleship model that focuses on living out the Great Commission, offering opportunities for people to authentically Encounter Christ and formation to Live as Disciples, the way Christ commissioned His twelve.
Our parish, in 2016, stopped all activities outside of the Liturgical life of The Church to re-evaluate how impactful our, at the time, parish life activities and ministries were. The result, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and the bi-product of lots of prayer, was discovering THE WAY. THE WAY provides good-solid opportunities for pilgrims to begin in ALPHA where we discover or rediscover the Kerygma…engage and CONNECT in authentic Christian community, EQUIP ourselves in a deeper knowledge and understanding of the traditions and history of the Catholic Church…SERVE our brothers and sisters both inside and outside the walls of the parish through the great works carried out by our Lead Like Jesus minded ministries…and, finally, GO, where people accompany other people in a mentor/mentee role of going out to disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our collaborative work setting fosters a trust-based environment, where respectful conflict is encouraged resulting in open dialogue, constructive feedback and healthy accountability to ensure the best possible outcome as a team and a parish. Prayer is the common thread that pulls all our work together.
We’re looking for people that have a relationship with Christ, are open to the Holy Spirit working within them, can think outside the box when it comes to parish life, are not scared of doing things differently and/or new, open to change and can buy-in to trust based team-style leadership where our motivating factor is Jesus Christ. We are looking to add members to our teams in the following positions…
