Parish Services

Youth

  • Permission Form
  • Youth Protection Training

  • Youth Ministry is a mission of the whole church for youth, by youth, with youth, and to youth. This mission is approached by programs and activities in several distinct areas: catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, enablement, pastoral care and prayer and worship. These are both gathered and non-gathered activities. Our goal is to provide the young people of Prince of Peace with an experience of community and faith as vital members of the parish family.
  • As Christian adults, we have a moral and legal responsibility and are entrusted by God with the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of minors and vulnerable adults. As they participate in activities within or sponsored by our diocese, it is our commitment to provide an environment which is safe and nurturing.
  • In accordance with the Diocese of Birmingham it is policy to offer continued Youth Protection Training to all employees and volunteers who have routine contact with children or vulnerable adults. All employees and volunteers MUST BE TRAINED.
  • There are 2 options to take the class. The complete schedule of free classes offered as well as the instructions for taking the online training class can be found at www.bhmse.weebly.com under ‘Child and Youth Safe Environment’. Once completed, a copy of the training completion certificate and a completed ‘Volunteer Inquiry Release Form’ must be returned to the POP Religious Ed Office for follow up processing.
  • Wednesday Nights

    Junior High meets every Wednesday night from 5:30-7:30. This includes fun events such as skating, bowling, and lock-ins, as well as prayer, parent/child activities, retreats, service projects, and making friends.

    High School meets every Wednesday night in the youth room from 6:30-8:15. This is a time of interactive faith discussions and activities where teens can grow in their faith by discussing real life issues and participating in faith building activities. On Wednesday nights we will have guest speakers, bible study, current event discussions, and "fish-bowl" (open-forum discussion). Following this we have free-time in the gym and youth room to play basketball and volleyball and hang-out with friends.

    Service and Social Activities

    Each month the youth group hosts one social and one service activity. Past social activities have included ski-trips, movie nights, lock-ins, and paint-ball. Past service activities have included cooking dinner for needy families, Habitat for Humanity, and the Angel Tree project. Watch the calendar for upcoming events!

    Sunday Nights

    On Sunday nights high school students come together for Mass, dinner, and fellowship time:
