Faith Hope and Charity 5K Fun Run/Walk Results
The Faith Hope and Charity 5K Fun Run/Walk was a huge success!  We had 608 registrants, and we met our goal of $15,000 to divide between Nuestra Senora de Las Mercedes orphanage in Honduras, the Prince of Peace Outreach, and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.  We made lasting memories, we promoted wellness, we celebrated the church's 20Th anniversary, and all while raising money for three deserving charitable organizations.  Way to go to the Prince of Peace MOMS Group for bringing the community together!!!

Knights of Columbus Crawfish Boil
The Knights of Columbus played an integral part with the success of the fun run.  They provided volunteers and participated when we needed them.  They have asked for our help now, so lets come together for the Knights!  They need volunteers for the Crawfish Boil on April 16 from 6-9 p.m.  If you cannot volunteer, then bring some friends and families and participant!  It is a fun family event!  Tickets are available online at www.kofc11716.org.  Must RSVP by April 13th!

Want to do the Koman Walk/Run?
Calling all MOMS members:  Join us Saturday morning June 11th as we participate in the Plano Race for the Cure benefitting breast cancer.  We all know of someone who has been affected by this terrible disease and what better way to support cancer research than to spend a morning with your POP friends.  We will be sending an evite out for anyone wishing to participate that will include the registration information for the race. The MOMS group will meet before the race so we can get a picture and participate together!  Mark your calendars now for June 11th!
