Another fun family event where we, the MOMS group, will volunteer & help out with the kids’ games. The Knights always provide a yummy lunch after mass with TONS of games, bounce houses, face painting, etc. for the kids.

Children's Playgroups

This a gentle reminder to turn in your completed membership registration forms and dues. Thanks!

Interested in Bunco?
There is a new group starting in September - if they would like to join please email Karen Judy.

This year the Moms Group will extend our efforts to helping our Sister Parish, the orphange in Hondours, with their immediate need for shoes. The orphange, which was founded by Father Jim and our Prince of Peace Community 10 years ago, is in desperate need of shoes for the children. We have a group of volunteers going to Honduras the first week of October and we ask that each of you that can, please bring in a NEW pair of shoes (from payless, anywhere) that fits the following criteria:
  • Sandals, Sneakers – that close with Velcro if possible.
  • School shoes and Church Shoes
  • Black Mary Janes that close with strap and White sneakers for boys.
Sizes range from 5 up thru 13. Older girls sizes 1thru 6. A lot of the kids are wearing sizes 7 and 8 and then another cluster of kids are wearing 11 and 12. We have a bunch of boys in the 3 and 4 year old group and they are mostly wearing 7,8 and 9 shoes.

The Committee would like to introduce you to our fundraising event of the year: "Faith, Hope, and Charity", 5K Fun Run/Walk and Raffle. Mark your calendars for March 5, 2011! This event will raise funds for 3 very deserving charities: Our Honduras Sister Parish, The Collin County Children's Advocacy, and our Prince Of Peace Church Outreach Program. Equally important, the event promotes health and wellness in our families and community. If you are interested in assisting on a committee or know of someone interested in being a sponsor for the fun run/walk or the raffle, please contact Liz Aldrine at 469-583-3100 or Bridget Jowid at 214-566-8020.

We are looking forward to a great year of creating lasting memories, good habits, and promoting wellness in our families and community while raising money for amazing charities!
