PASTOR’S CORNER

Dear Prince of Peace Catholic Church Family,

We are all saddened by the devastation and suffering that has hit Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey. As a parish community, we are responding to this great need by “adopting” a Catholic church in Houston, Prince of Peace Catholic Community. They have been spared from the storm and now they are turning their hearts and hands to help those affected by Harvey in the Houston area.

To help them, there will be a second collection at all Masses this weekend. We will also gladly accept cash, checks or gift cards to large stores like Lowe’s, Home Depot, Walmart, or Target. You can mail or bring them to the church office at 4600 Preserve Pkwy, Hoover, AL 35226. We will also gladly accept cash or checks dropped off or mailed to our church office. (Please make your check payable to our parish and note “Hurricane Harvey Relief” on the check.) In addition, we have added an option on Faith Direct (www.faithdirect.net, church code AL611) so that you can make an electronic, one-time donation to “Hurricane Harvey Relief.” The church office will combine all of the cash, check, and electronic donations and send the total along with the gift cards to the Prince of Peace Catholic Community Church.

Please prayerfully consider a donation to our Hurricane Harvey Relief appeal. Thank you very much.

~ Fr. John Fallon

Stewardship: Parishioners Answering God’s Call in Hospitality

  • This weekend provides many examples of parishioners using their talent and gift of time to make the annual Parish picnic the success that it is. The months of planning and countless hours preparing and executing the many events are fine examples of hospitality being shown to our parish family and community. Our brand of ‘All Are Welcome’ is never more evident.
  • Please submit your stewardship story examples to cathy.yarbrough@popcatholic.org. They may be edited for space consideration.
  • Live the Liturgy - Inspiration for the Week

  • Relationships are difficult, requiring honesty, dialogue, respect, and tolerance. We can easily offend one another, even by doing the simplest of things. Feelings can be hurt and relationships can become hurtful. Sometimes, our own wounds end up wounding others. When division or discord results, rather than responding with anger, judgment, and vindication, Jesus instructs us to be compassionate, tolerant, respectful, and forgiving. We can do this even when we have to confront someone with the truth, which may not always be well received. Even with our brokenness, we are all an image of God and should do all in our power to properly resolve conflicts.
